sleep-walking

last night i was in a peaceful slumber when i began to hear water dripping in the vicinity. since it had been raining, i thought for sure that our roof had sprung a leak right into our bedroom. i rolled over to assess the situation but quickly realized what was actually happening. for there was stevie bevie the birthday boy, standing at attending holding his you-know-what. he was peeing. on. our. carpet! 'steven!' i exclaimed. a quicker reply there never was, and i wish there were a recording of it, but he yelped. i mean yelped (like a girl). i told him he had peed on the carpet so he turned on the light, looked the area over, and yelled "it's not wet, liz, it's not wet!" then he stormed off to the bathroom. now, i have a tendency to say some crazy things in my sleep. i've been known to wake up screaming and pointing at invisible spiders on numerous occasions. so, considering stevie's denial of the 'accident' i began to question reality. i brushed my hand lightly over the carpet-it was indeed wet. a few moments and a soaked rag later and we were back in bed. laughing. i can't stop laughing.

to think all this happened on his 28th birthday, and i get mad at nash when he has an accident!

Dude, carl so did that to me the other weekend. Tried to pee on my head and then went to the bathroom and peed in the corner!?
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?
I was all - SERIOUSLY!?

Anyways. I thought I would commiserate.

Stevie Bevie is doing a good job of keeping the family entertained lately. I thought the shimmying was the funniest thing ever, but this is WAY better!

That is too funny. We died when we read it. I have to agree with J-Rok. The fact that you put it on your blog makes it even funnier. I wonder how many times he has peed on the floor without either of you knowing...

Awesome. Sucks that you had to clean pee up in the middle of the night but the laughs make it totally ok.

Happy Birthday Big Boy!

liz, that is hilarious! but you know, my husband tries to initiate sex in his sleep, usually having no recollection of it in the morning. is that too much information? hmm.
and i have to say, i also wake up yelling about spiders and swatting around.

sarah-actually, the night before the peeing incident, steven "initiated" about every five to ten minutes for about an hour-falling asleep between each "initiation." i finally had to ask him what the hell he was doing, and he had no idea he'd been doing it. talk about losing a precious hour of sleep! guys are creepy sleepers!
