Sleep Talker

I have a tendency to talk in my sleep.  I usually just say a few random words and it doesn’t make much sense to anyone that may hear me.

I also have a tendency to move around, as if I am acting out a dream.  A few nights ago, I was dreaming about escaping a room with a trip wire at the door.  In my dream, I raised my leg high into the air and crossed over the wire.

In reality, I was sleeping on my side and was on the edge of the bed.  While asleep, I moved my leg over the edge of the bed and toward my head.  This caused me to slide off the bed.

I found myself on the floor after this rude awakening.  The first thing that came to my mind:  I can’t believe I just fell off my bed, how ridiculous.


Has this ever happened to you?  If you have any funny stories about things you have done in your sleep, please share it in the comment section.  I am sure I am not the only adult that falls out of bed on occasion.

Sleeping Time not Barking Time

Last night, Ben decided to start barking at something after everyone was already in bed.  I told him to be quite, but he just ignored me.

I got out of bed, went to the window, grabbed Ben’s collar, and walked him to his normal sleeping spot.  I told Ben it was time for sleeping and not time for barking.  I pointed to his sleeping spot and told him to go to bed.

Ben plopped down and let out a loud pitiful sounding moan.  He looked totally disgusted with the situation.  However, he did go to sleep and didn’t say anything else for the rest of the night.
