Dreaming of the ones you "love"

I am a night owl. I'm usually up until about midnight every night. Sometimes I am reading, sometimes I can be found blogging, other times I am stuck doing homework till the wee hours of the morning.

Last night was no different. Though I desperately wanted to get back to the new book I just started, my other new books {meaning textbooks} had been staring me in the face all day. Four chapters of reading. It's only 140 pages right? Just for this week...because next week I'll have closer to 200 to read. But....hey! I love reading...so this should be enjoyable right? Too bad half of my reading is about rocks and plate tectonics.


BORING!


Anyway...back to my reason for posting. Last night I was trying to get through my assigned chapters in my Geology textbook. For me, the most comfortable place to read is in my bed propped up with multiple pillows. So, at 10:00 last night I grabbed my book and walked upstairs to find my hubby snoring soundly in our bed. The hubby doesn't stay up late. Every now and again he will, but for the most part he calls it a night at about 10:00. So, it wasn't odd for me to find a dark bedroom and the hubby's toes peeking out of the bottom of his blanket.

This was NOT going to deter me however. That's what the bedside lamp is for. :0) So, I clicked on the lamp and got comfy with my pillows and began learning all about ROCKS. About 30 minutes later, as I was getting my highlighter "ON", the hubby shifts sleeping positions.


Now, I realize that it is fairly normal to do this while sleeping. I shift sleeping positions quite a bit. What ISN'T normal is when your husband rolls over and mumbles




"Jack Bauer"





What?


That's what I said to him. I figured he had been woken up by the light from my lamp and was trying to tell me something. I didn't get a response from him. So I said it louder....


"What are you talking about?"


He turned and looked up at me and said "I didn't say anything."


Um...yeah....you did hubby dear. And I told him so. :0) Followed by letting him know whose name he was calling out in his sleep....


All I got as a response from him was, "Really? That's funny."


Sigh.....


You know it's sad when your husband is dreaming of someone else, but it's even more sad when they are dreaming about Jack Bauer. I know they have been having a secret affair ever since Santa brought the hubby Season 1 and 2 of the series "24". He was so obsessed with his new boyfriend Jack that he borrowed Seasons 3, 4, and 5 from our friends so he could get "caught up". He's almost done with Season 5 now. I knew it was serious, I just had no idea it had gotten this involved. :0)


Let this be a word of caution for you ladies out there....


Jack Bauer will take your husband away! He'll be the name that is called out in the middle of the night. If you are toying with the idea of letting Jack in your home....he will NEVER leave. So, be prepared to make up the guest bedroom for him, or put blankets on the couch for him. He'll be sticking around for a while. :0)
