Young love is great,everyday is national lipstick day…
Before I make you sick from cliche’s I’ll change the subject.
My other half talks in her sleep. She’s a deep sleeper. I would say it is because of night shift. But I knew her when we were teenagers. Young and unafraid. She slept the same back then.
“Back then” doesn’t seem that far. But we had flip phones,toms was just coming out, and kids born in 2000 couldn’t drive yet. So I guess it was maybe just a minute ago.
She’s always said funny things awake…
“That is mahogany!”
“What’s up nerd”
“Being a reindeer is ok, excluding and bullying other reindeer because he has a shiny red nose is NOT ok.”
“Can you do it with no hands?”
“Cotton candy? Mhhmm where did you meet this stripper?”
“Whatever, I know about you and all your whores”
Or waking up…
She is just too much
I tell her I have to go to work …
I kiss her
And she looks at me
“No no they’re all dead.”
“She needs to get a home kit, then she can de-lice at home like everybody else.”
And then there was that one time
I woke her up
And she struck me
“Don’t touch me.”
But she denies that ever happened.
I stand on the fact that I was awake
And she was asleep ….
But like Atwood said…
in the end
We all become stories.
So just remember
The next time you’re watching or reading fairy tales…
All was not quiet while the castle slept…
Sleeping Beauty was most likely talking in her sleep. . .
