the sleeptalking chronicles.

okay. this is an ode to my most favorite husband, and the most talkative sleeper i've ever known. either his brain is just super active, or he just loves to talk, even in his sleep (everyone who knows Colin will probably take the latter:)).

since Colin usually has to get up so early in the morning, around 5 am, he goes to sleep while i read my book or do stuff on the computer/watch movies. most of the time he starts talking before i go to bed myself, and i've taken to typing them out on a word document to tell him about the next morning and to chuckle at myself.

ps. in some of them i'll put what i said back to him. sometimes i like to try and talk back to see what he'll say or keep the conversation flowing. some may call it manipulation, but i call it fun. :)

(Colin sits up and looks around)
Me: What are you doing?
Colin: um.. i just came to make adjustments.
Me: really?
Colin: yeah. size-wise. to, i don't know. i can't think. i'm really tired.

Colin: Dominos...Intercourse.
Me: What's that about intercourse?
Colin: Well, how else are they going to get there?
Me: by intercourse?
Colin: yeah, some of them.

Colin: it's okay rachy. the real world has stuff that's tough to deal with in it.

Me: what are you doing?
Colin: nothing.
Me: nothing?
Colin: (smeagol voice) nothing!

(lays his head on my chest and starts mumbling)
Me: what's that?
Colin: oh, don't mind me, just talking.

(singing loudly, pausing between each word)
Colin: LUBLLLYYYYY, FLEEEEEALLLYYYY, FLILLLLLY............ okay, what are the words again?

Colin: those freaking exits are terrible
Me: exits to where?
Colin: anywhere
(he looks at me and we both start laughing)

Colin: um, kinda nasty. (groans) oh, happy dog.

(with his hands up in the air, thumbs up sign)
Colin: YES. that is a GREAT idea!

Colin: it was know, the guys were in the middle. they were the gestapo, you know, directing flow.

i like Colin so much. he keeps me laughing, even in his sleep.

grace and peace,
the wife.
