The importance of modesty while sleeping...?

Earlier this week, I suffered from severe Jorge-induced pain and grouchiness (double whammy!).  This type of pain makes it really hard for me sleep through the night and get to sleep.  Although, I did find that sleeping like a pregnant woman - on my side with pillows between my legs - was way more comfortable.  Yay for learning!

Anyway, it was of course these nights when Inspector Climate put on a show of sleep talking/sleep moving and a-shaking that we really should sell tickets too.  His conversations were mostly of the mumbled variety.

Him: do you agaljaga=ghwoih alkhgaoigaiw?

long pause

him: Ahhh, right.

But he also got up in the middle of the night, went to the bathroom, left the light on and came back into the bedroom with his towel wrapped around his waist. Now this is odd for several reasons. 1. Inspector Climate is not modest. In fact, he usually comes waltzing into the bedroom after his morning shower, in the buff announcing that he is naked.  "Naked!" ... "Naked!" only to say "Not naked" when he begins to dress.

I asked him to turn off the light to which he replied grouchily "In a minute!"

He then slipped his underwear on under the towel - so much modesty!, took the towel off and then went back into the bathroom to hang it up and turn off the light. Then ran his hand over the sheets on his side of the bed, to check for bugs I can only assume, and crawled back into bed for some well earned horizontal sleep.

The next morning I asked him what he was doing, why did he have a sudden urge to change his undies in the middle of the night which he of course did not remember doing at all. In fact, he did not remember anything after getting up and going to the bathroom.


  1. Hahahahhahaa

    That's hilarious.

  2. Oh...this made me laugh so. I do hope you are feeling better.

  3. I warned him to stay away from the Ambien! Haha Isn't it amazing what we have the privilege of witnessing while the other hasn't the slightest? Good times!

  4. This is hilarious! I used to walk in my sleep too, and I spoke in my sleep up until college. It must be SO strange for the "other" to be awoken by us nocturnal ramblers! :)

  5. That is amazing!

    I once sleep walked into my closet as a child. My parents found me in there screaming "Help me, help me, I'm lost in the forest!!".

    Another time I walked into my parent's room. Stood next to my Dad (which must have freaked him out when he woke) and handed him a doll saying "Open this." Good man that he is, took the doll, twisted his hand over it's head and said "Done, now back to bed".

  6. Hahahaha, that's brilliant! Hopefully Jorge has stopped being a little bitch by now and is behaving himself for a change? xx

  7. ha ha, what a crack up. sleep talking is always entertaining but is hilarious.

  8. Omg, I love these IC sleep action stories. Too funny!!

  9. When the hell is Jorge moving out of your ovaries?

  10. I sleep talk, too. It doesn't really have to be founded in anything :)

    I also used to get "death cramps", which woke me up in the middle of the night...prescriptions help with that nonsense. Ugh. Feel better :(

  11. That is absolutely hilarious!

  12. Hahaha, you should record him next time!

  13. LOL you guys would reach instant stardom with stuff like this! Too funny!!!

  14. Oh that Inspector Climate. I love that he gets irritated when you ask him to undo his night time doings. "In a minute!!" lol

    I used to sleep walk and I still talk in my sleep I think. I have also been known to answer the phone and hold conversations. Weird!!

  15. That's hilarious!! I'm sure he LOVES that you shared that with all of us! :)

  16. LOL! That is hysterical!

    I sometimes get undressed while I'm sleeping. I'll go to bed with PJ pants, a t-shirt and sweatshirt on and by morning I'm usually in just a t-shirt. And I never remember undressing.

    P.S. I'm giving away a wish bracelet today courtesy of Vivien Frank. Come check it out!

  17. Hahah, this was a fun read, can't believe what happens when we're asleep.

  18. Bahahaha! Growing up at my house was a hoot because my brother would routinely walk around and talk to people...totally asleep. He would even wake up in different places than where he fell asleep.

  19. LOL! My guy would kill me if I shared that story! Glad your's is a sport! Too funny!

  20. this is truly fantastic.

  21. My husband doesn't remember anything that happens in the middle of the night. And since we have two kids, we're up in the middle of the night rather often. I use this to my advantage. "OMG, you get up this time. I was just in there!" (no, I wasn't). "Dude, you promised me last night that you'd go put air in the tires this morning." (No. He didn't.)

  22. Alyx - He is so funny in his sleep :)

    Ellie - Thank you!

    Jessa Belle - This is only actually the tip of the ice berg!

    Jessica - It is REALLY odd, the sleep talking doesn't bother me so much, but the sleep walking...eek!

    Ruby - He is MUCH better at thinking on his feet than I am!

    Melbourne on my mind - Had a few good days, but feeling pretty ordinary.

    Vanessa - HILARIOUS.

    SJ - I'm definitely never entertained in the moment, but I usually see the humour the next morning.

    Teachergirl - I'm glad you enjoy them.

    The Zadge - 22 days :) Not that I'm counting.

    Iris - ICs ramblings 99% of the time are because he thinks there are bugs in the bed.

    Prixie - :)

    E - I know.

    Azra - if only i had the wherewithal to do so.

    Vanisha - YES! we could have our own reality tv show. Sure, most of it would be boring with sleep, but the few moments of gold would be...just that!

    M violetta - :)

    Ev Rev - That is very impressive! Answer the phone! Wow. I can tell if he is awake or if he is asleep by how angry he gets at me. Awake IC would never get mad at me.

    Lindsey - Funnily enough he didn't mind the sleep walking story but got embarrassed by the "naked" part of the story.

    Erika - Maybe!

    Krysten - Impressive!

    Sam - I know right!

    titleless blog - IC does that too. Not so much anymore, and he usually wakes up by the time he's wandered into some other room.

    Happy Little Trees Studio - If he wakes me up in the middle of the night for something this ridiculous..I'll be telling people!

    Vanessa - hah! We're a special bunch of people over here :)

    Mel - that is absolutely brilliant. I DEFINITELY need to get onto this type of shenanigans!

    Mrs Pancakes - :)

  23. hahaha sleepwalking is so odd, but provides so much entertainment!

  24. HAHA! He seems to always do the craziest stuff when he's sleep walking! Maybe you should set up one of those cameras!

  25. hee..hee...this was funny. it must be so weird to sleepwalk and not know it.

    thanks for sharing.
