Levity -Humor at my expense. A True Story!

So, a few nights ago, while I was sleeping a weird thing happened. Now, have you ever had one of those nights where you feel you’re asleep but not really…?

I hear a young girl saying ready Dad and a man’s voice saying OK. Then all of a sudden I hear this loud scream, I hear the man saying Oh my god! Clair, are you ok! I hear the girl crying and whispering.

I jump out of bed like Flash Gordon would; start to put my pants on. I notice Deb is looking at me very strange-like what the hell are you doing? That kind of look you get from your significant other letting you know you are doing something that they think is dumb.

While I pull the zipper up, I told her what I heard. I was surprised she did not hear it because it was FREAKING loud. As I am about to button my pants, she tells me it was the TV. There is nothing outside. I start to look at Deb like a damn Deer does when caught in headlights. “What?” I move closer to the bedroom window and I am hearing silence. WTF! In my daze of sleep but not asleep I feel confused.

After I fall asleep, Deb, if still awake will put in one of her DVD’s. And that is exactly what she did. I will admit this has never happened to me before. Once Deb realized I was out cold, she played her DVD so that she could fall asleep. At some point during the wee hours of the morning, I think it was 2 AM is when the weird event happened. The DVD that was playing, Heroes.

Story to be filed for my son.

  1. Michael, this has happened to me several times in my life and it was NOT the TV. I think writers tend to have very vivid dreams and I have learned to use that in my writing.
    Now that I am preparing to write my New Orleans story, there are memories that I swear happen but now can’t help but wonder how much of these memories are real. It’s very surreal!
    Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:

  2. Funny what the subconscious picks up while you are sleeping. Haha
    First of all thank you for the follow. I look forward to reading your posts. I loved your About Me, especially about the dogs sniffing each other. Made me laugh. It was a great analogy. 🙂


  3. Hi Michael,
    I know Purpleslob… and Ellen Hawley.
    Nice to see we have the same friends.
    I read your post.
    You shouldn’t feel embarrassed. There really could have been something going on that needed your attention or help.
    You want to know similarly what happens to me?
    The bed shakes in my sleep, I am in California; I think it’s an earthquake. I leap out of bed and run under the doorway.
    You don’t tell my embarrassing story, and I won’t tell yours, okay? =)
    Thanks for visiting my site today. I’m glad you liked my new Flipboard post.

  4. I watched that whole series and I didn’t catch it until you spelled it out! Funny story. It is the ones closest to us that catch us and make us look silly most often. I hope your wife got a laugh out if. (Women always say they like a man who makes them laugh, but try tickling them and see if they mean it. LOL!)

  5. Ha, ha, ha. When I was reading what you heard, I was thinking, “Sounds like Heroes. But it couldn’t be.” Ha, ha, ha. My husband is watching the series now on Netflix. When I was young I had a friend who HATED (REFUSED TO WATCH) public television. She had a TV in her room. When I spent the night one time she fell asleep so I turned on the TV and I turned it to public television. She used to talk in her sleep. She started talking to me about what was on TV. I was afraid she would remember when she woke up and be upset because it was public television. I changed the channel. 🙂
