We are all friends here right? Good. Then I see no reason why I should not show all of you that I am not ashamed to tell you some embarrassing stories as they come up. I mean really, what fun will this blog be if I decide not share the good and the bad with everyone. I really have no humility left after this story, so at the very least I hope everyone has a good laugh at my expense.
I normally do not sleepwalk. I do tend to talk in my sleep, at least I used to do it but Becky says that I do not really do this anymore. ( Apparently I just "snore"...but lets save that for another post!) In the past, I have woken myself up with my sleep talking but not in recent memory. As a teenager I used to have the odd sleep walk around the house but I must have outgrown this. So now that you understand that this is a rare thing for me, you can imagine my surpise when I had an awesome old sleepwalk this week!
Here is my sleepwalking adventure....
Earlier this week I woke up at 4:00am and walked around to Becky's side of the bed and proceeded to wake her up. Here is the conversation. Please do not judge me.
Shane: ( In my "all proud of myself" tone of voice) Hi Honey. I went to McDonald's and got you some breakfast. Its downstairs if you want it.
Becky: (Stares at the alarm clock.) What? What do you mean?
Shane: I got you some McDonald's. For Breakfast.
Becky: Honey, what are talking about? ( She is still trying to be nice here....even as she looks at the alarm clock again. Yep. 4:01am.)
Shane: McDonald's. Downstairs. For Breakfast. ( I am wondering why she does not want any?)
Becky: I'm Confused? ( She clearly gives up here. The tone is "I give up", but still in a nice voice. Even after being woken up at 4am.)
Shane: FINE! FORGET ABOUT IT THEN! ( This is when I stomp out of the room.) I am still at a loss as to why she is not excited about having McDonald's for breakfast.
Becky goes back to sleep. I march downstairs a little disappointed that she did not like my nice gesture. As I hit the bottom stair and look into the kitchen, I kind of "wake up". I soon realize that there is in fact NO McDONALD'S and I look around the kitchen a little confused myself. Thinking that Becky is about to get up and come downstairs, only to be disappointed by the lack of the phantom McDonald's, I run back up stairs and wake her again and tell her "don't worry hon, go back to sleep... there is no McDonald's". I walk out of the room with my tail between my legs, listening for Becky's laugh. ( There was no laugh but she probably held it until I left the room again.)
How Embarrassing. But like I said....we are all friends here right?
So....anyone else want to share an embarrassing sleep story?
