NaBloPoMo Day 20: There are motherflipping snakes in the motherflippin bed. (except not)

It is well documented on this blog that Inspector Climate talks in his sleep (see here, here, or here, or even here).

Well, the other night we fell asleep per usual after we had swapped sides and later I was woken up by Inspector talking to me quite loudly.

"D...D...the oldest one...." he then paused dramatically to collect his thoughts.

"D...D...The youngest one is right there"

I tried to ignore him because I knew where this was going, but he poked me roughly twice "D...it's RIGHT THERE"

"What? The youngest what?" I probed.

"The youngest snake."

"There are no snakes in the bed." My heart rate goes up as I think in my sleepy state, maybe this time he's right!

Exasperated at this point Inspector Climate said "It's right under your arm."

"There are no snakes in the bed!"

He sat up and started to pull back the sheets and I said it again "There are no snakes in the bed, I promise"

"Oh, no. No snakes in the bed? How could I get that wrong again?" he responded, he always so disappointed. Like "how could he get fooled again!"

Of course, in the morning, he had no recollection of this whole thing.


  1. Having somewhat recently experienced spiders in my shoe and shirt, I'm glad there weren't really snakes in your bed!! I can pretty much peacefully coexist with spiders but snakes scare the bejezus out of me! As someone who has been known to talk in my sleep (and, from what I've been told, say some pretty humorous things), I sympathize with IC.

  2. Poor fellow!

    I used to talk in my sleep. Usually, about spiders. My mom would always send my dad in to tell me there were no spiders (apparently, I creeped her out since my eyes were open) . . . and I'd said, "I know you think I'm dreaming, but I'm not this time." :)

  3. Haha! You must lose a lot of sleep that way! My bf doesn't usually talk in his sleep but the other day he did and we had a full conversation! It wasn't until part way through that I realised he was asleep. I actually said to him "You aren't going to remember this in the morning are you?" and he replied "Nope. Probably not!" Very strange.

  4. So stunning!

    Why don't we follow each other? :)


  5. That is just too funny a story! hahha.

  6. LOL! You guys and your bedroom (slumber) antics. You could write a book!

  7. Well I'm glad there weren't actual snakes in the bed! I feel like if my husband said that, there may be truth in it and I'd probably freak out whether I knew he was sleeping or not. He loves snakes and frogs and lizards and spiders and other ickies. *shudder*

  8. that is so funny! although more scary when you think it might be true!

  9. I laughed out loud! :) I am famous for sleep talking/walking. Not the least of which has included scaring others with the frightening animals I see in my dreams. I can really sympathize with your husband. :)

  10. Hilarious!!! I love the "how could I get that wrong again?" moment. Thanks for sharing!

  11. HAHAHAHA - that's frakkin awesome

  12. So funny!! I swear you need to record these :p
