Phyllis was talking in his sleep last night, well, the early hours of this morning. Just past five o'clock.
I was aghast.
I'm not sure what woke me up, but I turned to look at him as he said, "I'm moving in with that man."
Naturally, I asked what he was talking about, thinking he might have been awake (I was quite dazed and confused - anyone would be at such an ungodly hour).
"I'm moving in with him and Barnaby," he replied.
"Barnaby?" I asked
"I don't know if he's the kiddie or the pet."
"What the hell do you mean?"
"I have to go. The wheel's in motion. I can't stay here any longer. I'm sorry."
Phyllis can't remember what he was dreaming about. I'd love to know. He seemed to be replying to me - or was it just coincidence?
Why do we talk in our sleep? I do it sporadically, but have no recollection of it or any idea why I'm doing it. I used to walk in my sleep, quite a bit. I haven't done that in about twenty years, though there was a blip not so long ago. I woke up to find myself sat on the toilet. No idea how I got there.
Do YOU walk or talk in your sleep?
