This is only a test...

If this had been an actual emergency, you would have recieved further instruction. This is only a test. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.



So. My husband claims that he doesn't dream and never has. I maintain that he just doesn't remember them when he wakes. Except last night....

Apparently he had snuggled very close in the night. Cute, right? While he was cuddling up, he began dreaming that he was in a house with his friends. And it caught fire. And my husband, concerned for his friends' safety, screamed out warnings.

Except he really did shriek ''FIRE'' at the top of his lungs.

Two inches from my face. People, there is no sleeping through THAT. The flood of adreneline through my body was instant and effective. I was off that bed and bursting into our son's room, bent on rescue, before I realized that there was no problem beyond my husband's volume control.

I suppose its a bit unfair to be annoyed at him for a dream, but oh, couldn't he have dreamed about bringing the sleep-deprived wife coffee and chocolate instead?? And maybe a nice back rub?

I'm just going to count my blessings that he wasn't dreaming about stomping on spiders.

Yikes!

Hubby turned to me one night in his sleep, when we were first sharing a bed, smiled a wide maniacal grin and said, "Niiiiiicccee!" in a Silence of the Lambs - "I'll eat your liver" kind of voice. It was very freaky. He couldn't remember what he'd been dreaming when he woke up the next morning.

Hi! found you via Reluctant Housewife.

Hee hee hee! Sorry, it must have been pretty frightening at the time, but it does make me laugh.

I once woke up in the morning and wondered who this strange man was in bed next to me. I proceded to attack my husband shouting "Get out!" he's never let me forget it!

All the best

Freaky!!

My husband has the coolest dreams. He'll be flying, or playing some professional sport, whereas I have really strange dreams all the time.

I have this recurring dream that it's the first day of a new semester at college and I can't find my class.

Thank heavens I only have one semester to go!!!

then I'll be dreaming about not being able to find my place of work..lol!

I guess I really should take your husband's side in this but I is too mischievous for that. I suggest that if he yells "fire" in his sleep again, that you extinguish the dream by splashing a glass of cold water on his face.

Not that it is any consulation but I thought this story was going to have a completly different ending that had to do with humping legs and whispering sweet sexual nothing in your ear. Yeah...my hubby only seems to remember those kind of dreams.

My husband shrieks about cheese.

I feel your pain.

Wait a minute...did this happen the same night my son had his yelling fit? Maybe it's a Korean thing? Okay, my son is only 1/4 Korean, but maybe there is just something in their blood...or in the stars, or something weird like that! At least he wasn't dreaming about choking people! Scott has dreamt about that a few times and it makes me afraid to sleep in the same bed as him!
