The rest of the conversation went like this:
Todd: "I saaaiiid, 'Know what I mean, Vern?' "
Todd: "KNOW. WHAT. I. MEAN. VERN?"
Erin: "I heard you. I just don't know what that means."
Todd: "Never mind. Just forget it."
Erin: "No. Not 'never mind.' It's the middle of the night and you woke me up to tell me something and I want to know what it means."
Todd: "It's from Ernest!"
Erin: "Yes, sweetheart. I know that the quote, 'Know what I mean, Vern?' is from Ernest. Why did you say it to me right now?"
Todd: "Because of the conversation we were having about writing journals and the big discussion we just had about research."
Erin: "Todd? Are you asleep?"
Todd: "I don't know, maybe."
Erin: "We didn't have a conversation about journals or research."
Todd: "Just forget it."
I don't have much experience with people talking in their sleep. One of my best friends does some sleep walking and talking and I was always able to talk her back into bed, but it's a little different when your lifetime bed partner is quoting Ernest P. Worrell in the middle of the night.
p.s. We had a 4D ultrasound of our precious baby boy today, but the "Ernest talking in your sleep" story trumped the 4D ultrasound story for blog material. More on the ultrasound coming tomorrow.
