Someone's playing too much Fallout

Chris: [claps hand on my arm] Welcome back!
Me: From where?
C: Uh, let's see. It was from one genre to another.
M: Genre?
C: Yeah, first you were deadly beauty and now you're...I can't remember the word.
M: I'm a deadly beauty?
C: Well, of course!
M: [laughs] Ok.
C: I just have to finish this scenario.
M: What scenario?
C: In Anchorage.
M: Ohhh, is this Fallout?
C: Yeah.
M: Are you trying to kill me?
C: No.
M: I'm on your team?
C: Yeah.
M: Am I helpful?
C: Yeah.
M: Well, that's good.

I should have known I'd get a comment like "Awesome" from you, on my latest blog story. Did you happen to click on the link to the original "You Knew He Was An Engineer" story? It was about your mom and dad!

haha, this and the sleep talking man blog are funny

Laura said...

Agree with Mr. Awesome. Has Chris stopped sleep-talking lately? I hope he starts again!! These are just priceless :D

I'm glad you guys enjoy it! :)

To Laura - yes, he's sadly been quiet lately. We're in the middle of a move, and while sleeping in different places makes ME dream all sorts of weird things, it seems to have quieted Chris down. I'm hoping he'll start back up again soon, once we're settled. :)

I'm thinking there's some sort of subconscious psychological trigger. For instance, there was a period where I was reading books before going to bed. I kept a stack of "to read" books on the nightstand that I was determined to get through. Lately I haven't been reading before bed, since with the move and the new job, I'm physically exhausted by bedtime (and sometimes even before!).

Reading may have something to do with how my brain prepares to sleep, and specifically allows for a sort of "shallow REM" sleep that makes me interactive. It's worth experimenting. Hmmm, I've got a Stephen King book lying around here somewhere...

Laura said...

Oooo, that sounds dangerous! haha. Just don't keep any creepy masks around ;)

After Stephen King, try reading some Yoda sayings..... that could prove very interesting listening for Mel! haha
