Feel Good Friday: How do you sleep at night?

A few Fridays ago I posted about Shawn’s possible sleep walking expedition which included Fruit Loops and Sports Center at 1 o’clock in the morning.  I’m not sure, but I think he may be up to it again.  You be the judge, okay?  Here’s how it went down…

Last night I was laying in bed, wide awake, thinking about the trip that I had just booked for my Mom and I for next month.  I tossed, I turned, I thought about a naked cowboy…but I couldn’t fall asleep.  I was just too excited!  So, I did what any logical woman would do, I decided to talk to my husband about it.  Mind you, it was 12:30 am, but he was awake, right?

Me (poking and jabbing at Shawn):  “Hey!  Hey, Shawn!  Are you awake?”

Shawn:  “Wha wha what?”

Me:  “Are. You. Awake?”

Shawn:  “Kind of.”

Me:  “Kind of?  What does that mean?”

Shawn:  “It means I’m kind of awake!”

Me:  “Well, anway…I can’t get to sleep.”

Shawn:  “I can.”

Me:  “This isn’t about you, it’s about me, and I can’t get to sleep!”

Shawn:  “Well, I can.”

Me:  “Ugh, whatever!  I can’t sleep because all I can think about is the trip!  I’m so excited!”

Shawn:  “Yeah, it’s great.  Good night.”

Me:  “But I can’t get to sleep!  I keep thinking about what I’ll do when I get there.  I don’t even know what I’ll do!”

Shawn:  “You’ll sightsee.  What else would you do?”

Me:  “I don’t know!  I don’t even know what I want to see or do!”

Shawn:  “Go see the naked cowboy.”

Me:  “Is he actually naked?  He can’t possibly actually be naked.”

Shawn:  “Who cares!  It’s 12:30 and I want to go to sleep!”

Me:  “But I can’t go to sleep, I’m too excited!”

Shawn:  “Well, I’m going to sleep.”

Me:  “Noooooo!”

Shawn (getting up and taking his pillow with him):  “Well, I’m going to sleep, so I’m going downstairs!”

Me (rolling over and spreading out over the whole bed):  “That is so rude!  I just wanted to talk to you!”

Shawn (climbing back into bed):  “No, talking to someone in the middle of the night is rude!  Hey, what are you doing on my side of the bed?”

Me (not moving an inch):  “Sorry, I already moved into my new area of the bed.  I’m pretty tired, I’m going to sleep.”

At this point Shawn sighs and grumbles and grabs his pillow again to go downstairs.  As he’s walking out I yell:


“Hey, stay off of my new couch, okay?  I don’t want any drool on it!”


So, what do you think?  He had to be sleep walking, right?  No man sleeps on the couch/floor just to avoid talking to his wife, does he?  Impossible!  Oh, and the naked cowboy?  Apparently he wears tighty whities, see for yourself:

Ha ha! Oh my word - that is too funny!

Yep - the Naked Cowboy isn't truly naked (thank goodness)! You'll have a blast!

Oh my, that is too funny! :)

HAHA! Surely he was sleep walking! There is no other logic behind that behavior. :)

OMG. I LOVE this story. I actually loved it so much that I picked up my laptop, carried it into the bathroom, and read this story out-loud to Ed while he was in the shower. I could barely keep from cracking up the entire time I was reading it out-loud, and when I was done, he confirmed that it totally sounded like a conversation we might have with each other.... Except, he assured me that he would never take the effort to get up out of bed were that exact conversation to take place. He would simply roll over and do what we call "giving me the butt" for the entire night and refuse to spoon. Gotta love those boys... lol

Charbelle said...

LOL too funny!!! Thank you for sharing and making me laugh first thing on a Friday morning!

Melissa said...

That will be an awesome trip... I bet you are pumped!

One Take On Life - Heather said...

That will be a super fun trip! Love that picture, good for a laugh:)

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

Oh you made me laugh!!!!! That is funny!

I have always wanted to go to NYC!!! I am so super excited for you!!

Just Add Walter said...

so disappointing that the naked cowboy isn't naked... he should be called tighty whitey cowboy.

Hillary said...

Surely surely he was sleeping! There is no other explanation that even begins to make sense.

Can't wait for you to go to NYC, you'll love it! Although...I actually prefer Chicago, but NYC is awesome and a must for sure.

Did you know that Naked Cowboy is actually in a legal battle with Naked Cowgirl right now? It has something to do with copyright laws or something. Just ready about it on cnn on too long ago.

TOO FUNNY! Thanks for a great smile and explaining what is wrong with my husband too :)


Jen said...

Once again, you crack me the hell up!!

I have to know...did Shawn drool all over the couch!??

How FUN that you guys are going to New York!! I don't think I would be able to sleep either!!

Leah said...

I'm just glad that your hubby can handle your antics Tami. Hahaha! You are always so hilarious. I'm excited for your NYC trip too. xoxo

Madison said...

If I woke my husband at 12:30 in the morning for anything other than a fire or sex he'd make ME sleep on the couch! But with that visual of the naked cowboy, maybe it would be worth it.

Amanda M. said...

HA! You are freaking hilarious. But I have been known to be wayyyyy too excited to sleep the night before a trip. :)

Lil' Woman said...

Def. sane awake husband would walk away from his wife while she was talking! :)

Christa said...

You crack me up girl!

Toy Story 3 definitely had its sad moments, but overall it wrapped up the story nicely.

I can't think of anything that would make Despicable Me out of her age level... James, my sis and I all loved it! :)

lisleman said...

you really expected your spouse to stay up in the middle of the night to talk about a naked cowboy.
What's the next subject - brokeback mountain?
One time in NYC was enough for me. I didn't see the cowboy but Times Square is pretty cool. Stay away from smoking SUV's.

Kelsey Claire said...

How did I miss Naked Cowboy when I was in NYC? I mean really? TJ always gets mad at me because when I go to bed after him I turn on lights and I want to talk. He has been known to storm out himself. Like that is going to change anything!

Meghan said...

NYC? Oh lady, I am majorly jealous. Best.City.Ever.

You and Shawn sound like me and the hubs. I constantly poke him in the face and wake him up when I can't sleep:)

Helene said...

That's too funny!! It could've been worse though...instead of listening to me talk to him if I can't sleep, my hubby would probalby suggest a little "nocturnal activity" to help me get to sleep. Know what I'm saying?

So envious you're going to NYC!! I've never been but it's one of the places on my bucket list!!
