Ch.35. “I Wasn’t Talking in My Sleep. I was Talking in Your Sleep.”

Ch.35. “I Wasn’t Talking in My Sleep. I was Talking in Your Sleep.”

            Four a.m.; I awake to hear Pat dialoging with some of her “waking dream” associates. Pat says a few words, then pauses and waits for a response. I think sometimes someone answers but sometimes nobody speaks up. Either way, Pat takes back the conversation and speaks again. Her tone is cheerfully confident and pleasant. Still, it is 4 a.m. and I am tired.

            I try to be diplomatic. “Dear, “I say, “You are talking in your sleep.”

            “No,” Pat responds laughingly, “I’m talking in your sleep.” She does promise me, though, that she’ll soon end the conversation for my sake so I can get back to my own dream state.

            Humor is joyful even at 4 a.m. I’m grateful that Pat still has a good sense of humor. Lewy Body hasn’t eliminated that part of her personality and hopefully never will.

 

Pat’s comments on “I WASN’T TALKING IN MY SLEEP…”               

            I said that because I realized I was talking out loud and you were hearing me and supposedly sleeping. I was joking. I didn’t know what to say.
