How To Start Your Wife’s Day Off Right

May 21, 2009

This morning when I woke up (yes, at 4:30 a.m. as usual) I immediately headed for the bathroom per my routine, and the first thing I saw on the counter was a note for me from my husband on top of Mariah Carey’s first CD. David had just shared with me the other day that this was one of the first three CD’s he bought as a teenager, a fact that I proceeded to tease him about. (The other two were Metallica and Boyz II Men…ha.) The note talked about how he wanted to share it with me since I never really listened to Mariah Carey, and some other really great mushy stuff that I just LOVED, but will be keeping to myself. :)

Then when I went to wake him up to say goodbye, per my routine, instead of turning over and telling me he loves me or reaching out to give me a hug, he looked me straight in the eyes as if he was totally awake and said:

“If you put me back to sleep right now there’s a really good chance that I’ll be able to pop popcorn in my mouth.”

Of course, I burst into subdued laughter. Sleep talk is hilarious. I asked him, “Do you know why you just said that, love?”

“Yes. Because I turn into a fried chicken. On the outside.”

Someone must have gone to sleep without dinner.

    From Nikki:

    That’s so funny! Sleep talk is the best, we used to keep a pad of paper by the bed to write it down – should do that again!!
    Btw I think either Mariah Carey or Green Day was my first CD, Mariah must’ve been so with the times back then, having the first CD out so everyone got it whether they liked her or not.

    From DeMo:

    I loved that. So sweet. I’m looking forward to the day when I’m married and can have my own sleep-talker who leaves sweet nothings for me on the bathroom counter.

    While others are commenting, I think my first ever CD was either a hand-me-down of Matchbox20 from my sister (before they were matchbox twenty) or WOW 97.

    Hilarius. The first comment could mean that your kisses are just that steamy, but I have no idea what to do with the fried chicken remark. Maybe he wanted to say that you gave him goose bumps in a crispy way? ;-)
