Pillow Talk #98275: Inception with Indiana Jones

If you’ve seen the movie Inception, then you’re familiar with the premise of placing a dream within a dream (within a dream within a dream).

If you haven’t, you now know all you need to know.

Meghan isn’t new to talking in her sleep (or laughing, for that matter) and during the time that we’ve been married I think I’ve spent roughly half of our nights listening to her ramble on about nothing-in-particular during the middle of the night.

Truth is, she has a tendency to sleepwalk, too. During our first few months of being married, she was up and walking around our bedroom talking about “puppy feet.” True story.

But last night, she may have topped it all.

I woke up around 3am to Meghan violently shoving me around, kicking me, and laughing as if she was having the time of her life. No exaggeration.

Tom: Meghan. Meghan..!

Meghan: [ Still laughing, pushing, and kicking.]

I actually reach over and grab her arm to get her to stop. She does.

Tom: What are you dreaming about?

Meghan: Oh. Sorry. We were watching Indiana Jones and eating dinner and I was trying to help by shoving all of the stuff on the table around.

Truth. I couldn’t make this up even if I wanted.

So we get up later this morning and I stumble into the bathroom (I’m not worth of much anything when I wake up).

Tom: You really got me good last night.

Meghan: Huh? Oh yeah. I was dreaming that there was this entire mess on your side of the room and I was shoving everything over into you. You know, it’s like when you’re a kid and you’re not allowed to make a mess. Except we were and I was having a lot of fun.

Tom: That is not what you told me last night.

Meghan: What did I tell you?

Tom: That we were watching Indiana Jones and eating dinner and you were trying to clean everything off by shoving it all over the place.

At this point, she’s cracking up. She mentions that she recalls the bit about Indiana Jones and that the “dream in a dream” thing is weird.

But if you’ve seen Inception you know it’s not so weird. Unless of course it’s your wife and you’re getting shoved out of the bed in the middle of the night.

Otherwise, it’s not such a big deal,
Tom

    1. haha, I was laughing so hard the next morning that I had to sit down and wipe the tears off my face. I am always messing with Tom in my sleep.

  1. Yesterday, we were at the sleep clinic for James to get checked out by his sleep doctor, and it happened to come up that I sleep talk and walk. The doctor said that it can actually be dangerous, and that I should get a sleep study to check into it. Apparently it can be bad for your long-term health (make you die younger), and it can even lead you to do dangerous things, like grab a knife and kill someone. (Seriously.)

    Since you are even more active than I am, I thought I’d let you know that you might want to get a sleep study done. I’d hate for something to happen to one of you, or to a baby if you have one eventually.

    1. Yikes! Well, I do want to do a sleep apnea test, but I doubt I will stab anyone since I never have made it out of our bedroom, and I don’t keep any knives in there!

  2. This is cracking me up! 🙂 Lately, every time Henry snuggles up to me when I am sleeping… I start dreaming that I am burping Lia on that shoulder. I’m not sure if I’ve smacked him in the head or not, but I wouldn’t be surprised. Esther and I both dream that we are feeding the girls, then start looking for them frantically in the bed thinking that we’ve smushed them, then wake up and realize the babies (praise God) are still sleeping over in their own beds peacefully. We actually dreamed this on the same night the other day.

    1. Oh man, that would terrify me to dream about smushing my baby. Of course, I don’t have a baby yet. But you know what I mean. One more reason I don’t want to have them in the bed with me and Tom at night!

      Hilarious that you dream Henry is Lia and needs to be burped! I hope you do smack him in the head sometime; that would make a funny story. 😉
