Erin is my cousin. She really likes sleeptalking stories. I thought others might enjoy it as well.
The other night, Sam and I were supposed to go out with friends, but I wasn't feeling well. So I went to bed around 9pm and he went out for a little while. When he came home, apparently I opened my eyes.
Sam: "I'm sorry, did I wake you up?"
Me: "No, my thoughts did."
Sam, starting to chuckle: "Your thoughts? What were you thinking about?"
Me: "I'm trying to figure out where Jim is going to sleep."
Me: "Yeah, from The Office. He's coming to visit."
Sam, trying not to laugh: "Oh, when is Jim coming?"
Me, waking up and realizing what I've been saying: "Jim isn't coming, he isn't real. It's just a TV show!"
Sam: "But he's coming to visit?"
Me, trying to recover and appear that I wasn't talking in my sleep: "Stop trying to make me sound dumb, I know he's not real!"
Sam, laughing: "Okay, honey, go back to sleep."
Me, still trying to recover: "I wasn't sleeping! I was awake!"
(Just to clarify, that's the character Jim from the TV show The Office. We told this story to friends who had never seen the show and they were a little concerned I was talking about a guy from the office coming over to sleep. Apparently I've been watching The Office a little too much on Netflix...)
