Good Day World!
Have you ever talked, walked, or ate something in your sleep?
When I was five-years old one particular incident really stood out. Fair warning. I was a heavy sleeper and was already known for talking in my sleep.
That day was my birthday. In front of the whole world – which at the time was my mom, dad, uncle and aunt, I got out of bed and walked into the kitchen and up to the refrigerator (and before anyone could move) dropped my pajamas and peed on the remnants of my birthday cake!
How embarrassing was that? As you can guess, I’ve been reminded of that humiliating moment a million times.
People do interesting things when they are in a deep sleep. I use to talk about my day’s activities. My mom would tell me what I said the next day. Basically, I was busted because I even talked about the naughty things I did.
It terrified me until I got over both sleep talking and walking when I was around seven years-old. Thankfully, I just stopped. I was guilty of a sleep eating incident when I first got married.
My new bride was taken back when in the middle of the night I sat up grabbed an apple from my end table, and proceeded to eat it. I never said a thing. The next morning she asked me what that was all about?
As far as I can remember – we’ve been married for 41 years – that was the only time I ate in my sleep.
I saw a video the other day about a young woman who walked nine miles in her sleep. Luckily, she wasn’t hurt, and nothing bad happened.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
