Now before any of you go off and judge me based upon the title of this post - please let me explain...
I was so exhausted that I went to bed immediately after watching Deadliest Catch and After the Catch last night. (Both were super sad - BTW.) Usually it takes me a good twenty to thirty minutes to fall asleep - but not last night. I was so tired that I drifted into an incredibly deep sleep almost immediately.
So you can imagine my surprise when midsleep I felt myself being hoisted out of the bed. One second I am sound asleep, the next I feel my entire upper body being raised from my pillow. Startled, I opened my eyes to find my husband's arms wrapped around my shoulders and waist. What the...okay maybe he wants a little late night....
That thought was quickly interrupted when hubby slammed me back down onto the bed. He then leaned over me and whispered into my ear, "That's right - I told you I would be king!" WHAT THE?!?!?
"Steven" I questioned, "what are you doing!?!" "Racing and wrestling", he replied. Realizing that sleeping in the bed next to a man who was obviously acting out some dream about racing and wrestling might become rather dangerous, I decided it was best to wake him up.
I gave him a quick shake and his eyes opened with a look of confusion and concern. "Did I wake you", he asked. "Umm..yeah - you kind of body slammed me tough guy." "Oh - sorry, I was having some crazy dreams." To which the only response I could think of was, "You don't say?!?!"
A quick glance at the clock confirmed it was 4:00 am - so I rolled over and willed myself back to sleep. Thankfully hubby's motor skills and strength were significantly diluted in his unconscious state - otherwise that body slam might have done some real damage!
I really shouldn't complain. I'm the worst person to sleep with in the world - I snore, steal the covers and have a major tendency to drool (yes - I just admitted that.) So I guess I can put up with hubby's late night role playing every once in a while - maybe next time he'll be a fireman or Edward Cullen. :)
