As per the title.

DBF talks in his sleep and sometimes has me in hysterical giggles with the things he says. A while ago he was furiously swearing about "Those effing ducks!" and just tonight he was muttering something about New England.

Apparently once in my sleep I announced "No. A__ [pet whippet] has the tray. It's on her head."



Need a good giggle at the moment.

My ex husband one sat up in his sleep and put his hand facing up on my side and muttered "my hand is an ash tray"
When I questioned him he just just kept insisting "My hand is an ash tray!" Then lay back down and started snoring lol

He had no recollection of it at all!

DH once said, "get out, there's an elephant in the tub"....I teased him about it for ages.  biggrin.gif

Another time he rabbited on about sausage rolls for a good couple of minutes.  unsure.gif

And some years ago, he used to cut lawns and do landscaping, for 13 hours a day. One night, he was in bed asleep, moving his arms around like he was using a snipper lol.

I love to lead a sleep talker along, try to keep the conversation going and make them say random stuff. I love getting the chance to do this.

I record conversations I have with DP in his sleep from time to time. They are quite amusing
DP: "I need to go to Banana Face"
      "A sandwich shop"

Must say however that I am one to act out my dreams, will be swatting spiders that are descending from the ceiling, tried to climb out a window etc

DH talks in his sleep but I very rarely remember it in the morning.
One that I do remember is he was angry at me for stepping on his rivets. Apparently he had been putting rivets in the stairs at work and I stepped on one. Whoops  unsure.gif

DD (4yo and cosleeping) was snuggled into DH's back when she said, in a "horror movie" voice (all raspy) "it's not here...". DH said he was too sh*t scared to turn around and make sure it was her and not some horrible demon in the bed laughing2.gif

My DH has action dreams, one morning at about 3am, I woke to a loud crash, turned over in time to see DH appearing from the floor next to the bed, apparently a guy in a bulldozer was trying to run him over and he commando rolled out of the way and off the bed, poor bugger hurt his back, I had to get his phone so he could ring his coordinator and let him know he couldn't go to work, I composed myself until he started recounting it on the phone, I lost it completely , so at 3.15am DH, his coordinator and myself are in stitches.

DH often sleep talks and acts them out. One time he shouted out, quick get back Greg, while holding m back. He then rolled over and strangled the bedside lamp.

Just last night it was, it's ok you can come out now. He never remembers it.

A couple of weeks ago, during the new baby sleep deprivation, I would often doze off while laying down and BFing during the night... One night I woke up not remembering that I had put DD back in her bassinet and panicked I said 'where's the baby!!', DH answered several times 'she's in my pocket, she's in my pocket'. biggrin.gif

Haha. My sister and I had a conversation with dad when he was asleep about the Spice Girls. We asked him which was his fave but he didn't know any of their names.

I'm a sleep talker at times. The funniest incident I remember is when I was a kid and I yelled out to my mum that my leg was sore. I was near crying about it apparently but when I woke up, my leg was fine. Mum didn't realise I was sleep talking at first because I was also clutching at my leg.

These days my lucky husband gets to engage with me in my nutty conversations. He likes playing along.

I walk as well as talk. Once I went out to the lounge room, opened the doors on the tv cabinet (under the tv) and started changing the channel. When asked what I was doing, responded in that 'well duh' voice, I'm getting a coffee mum!

I was 6, lol.

My 4 year old DD has said 'mum! Mum! (then in an almost whisper) there's a monkey in the shower

One night I was at the drive ins with DH and my friend, as usual he fell asleep. All of a sudden he started saying "I'm late for work, I'm late for work". He then started the car and went to put it in drive while I frantically dive over and turned the ignition off.

My DS laughs in his sleep.  It's adorable.

My DH once insisted repeatedly that there was a rabbit in the bed - I actually had to get up and turn the light on before he'd calm down.

My DH sleep talks and sleep walks and has done some rather funny things in his sleep. He has episodes where he will act out his entire dream for more than an hour. He once mopped the entire house in his sleep. Once he was hunting for something, got a speed ball, dragged it back to bed and tried to eat it.

He once told me that in Africa monkeys get centerlink too and I was standing in the wrong line, I had to get out of the monkey line and into the human line.

One night he yelled out that he needed to get some pussy and take her home. I'm like , What??? and then he replied, well fireman don't get them out of trees anymore.

Last night he yelled out "I know the ad said the tug toner can be used anywhere like at home, in the car and in the office but I don't think I'd be using it while at church, that is just taking it a bit too far."

just before he went to sleep, he had watch this on facebook lol.
