Goodnightus interruptus

Yesterday’s post about disrupted sleep reminded me of something that happened more than once when I was married to my second (and last) husband. I would be sound asleep, then somewhere in the deepest recesses of my mind, I’d hear him calling me. It would go something like this:

Hus2 (whispering): “Baby!...Baby?”

I wouldn't answer immediately as my foggy brain tried to sort out whether or not I was dreaming. So he’d start again:

Hus2 (a little louder and accompanied by a nudge): “Baby!”

Me: “Hummmmph. What?”

Hus2: “Are you awake?”

Me (wide awake and alert now): “Yes, why?”

Hus2: “I wonder what woke us up.”
