Things that go bump in the night!

Sometime during the small hours of the morning,I rose from my bed with a compelling need to go into the kitchen.
I opened my bedroom door,took the few steps across the foyer,and walked head on into the kitchen door jamb.
..It knocked me out!
I woke up,butt naked on the entry floor,and realized I had been sleepwalking!

I remembered getting out of bed as if that part was a dream.I have no clue why I was going into the kitchen,unless it was to assure myself that the light in the refrigerator does indeed go out when you close the door.

As far as I know,this is the first time I've ever walked in my sleep.
I suppose it's possible I've done it before,but how would I know?

I have a small knot on my forehead this morning,to show for the experience.
The kitchen door jamb escaped unharmed.

As a long time sleep walker I've had to tether myself to the bed for years.

which is not as much fun as it might seem.

jan- HA!..I'm just glad I decided to go to the kitchen,rather than take a stroll down main street in the buff.

We can talk sleepwalking after you tell me how much of the elixir was elixed last night. And how many fingers am I holding up?

I gots me some experience with men thinking they're sleepwalking, when I'd call it something else entirely. :) :)

I'm sorry about your knot. I'm knot sorry about your naked. That's pretty hot.

booda babe- Oh,I'd most definitely been imbibing,but no more than usual.
Put it this way,I was sober when I 'woke up' on the floor. :)

You know,I said that hitting my head knocked me out,but how do you get knocked out when you're already unconcious??..most mystifying.

Shit! I have this thing here that if I fall over I won't be found for days and...er... well the dog has to eat... so am pretty careful - never thought about sleepwalking. Told the girls not to blame the dog at all.

Its so cold here, you had my immediate sympathy for waking up on the floor starkers, but then remembered its summer there...

get your mate to tie your leg to the bed tonight...might help ;)

yellerdawg- You'll recognize me when I arrive at your doorstep.
I'll be the guy wearing socks.

middle child- Great,..now I can wake up naked on the floor with a rope tied around my ankle,and my bed stuck in the doorway. ;)

Poor baby!
After saying that I must admit to giggling. This is a vision that just make a person smile. Perhaps you should pad the door knobs and corners in your house.

maybe you should sleep with your bicycle helmet on until this blows over.

Okay just how much liquid gold was consumed over the weekend? :^)

For years I have been a sleepwalker...my sister was a sleep walker and a sleep talker. One night I wound up at the neighbors..with the dog and cat curled up next to me..good thing I was found by an elderly gentleman..age 96 yrs...Sleep walking is troubled dreams, Mr.Sling... I have studied this in depth......think about them...I will think of you.

Quick!--get a doctor's note verifying your somnambulism--you can start torching neighborhood Starbucks, do society an enormous favor, and if caught, I am sure there is legal precendent for not taking responsibility. Plus I'll personally recommend you for a Congresional Medal of Freedom.

I think billy p. has the right idea, you need to start wearing your bike helmet to bed. Don't want to cause any more damage to that noggin of yours!

Wow a naked sleepwalker. How cool. Well except for your head. I am too lazy to sleep walk.

I have walked in my sleep a couple of times. All I can tell you was that at the time I was under a lot of stress, which is the only explanation I can think of.

My younger brother on the other hand used to sleep walk until he got married. Maybe getting laid made all the difference for him.

Sorry about your head. Maybe you could find some nice lady who would be into tying you to the bed and had a thing for bicycle helmets?

Last time I went sleepwalking was 4 decades ago.

Sorry about your head. Maybe some PJs are in order, just in case.

mom- I hear you giggling! ;)

Billy P.- I left my helmet on the special bus.

CS- Ice Cream!!..That'll make me feel better.
I'm tellin' ya I really wasn't hammered.
That would have made for a better story.

austexgrl- In truth,there have been some issues on my mind.
Nothin' serious really,just stressful.
My brother used to carry on entire conversations while totally asleep...This was a first for me.

Oliver- Now that's the kind of thinking I admire!!
You'd make a great felon.
..and I mean that in a good way.

Lost- Don't tell anyone,but I've been locking my bedroom door ever since,in an effort to thwart an further naked excursions.

Sage- My head is fine doll,..hardly a scratch.It probably only succeeded in knocking some sense into me. ;)

evil G.- I associated the whole incident with stress right from the git-go,and have adjusted my attitude accordingly.
While finding an agreeable female might reduce that stress in the short term,I think I'll just go on about the business of dealing with one nuerotically maladjusted personality at a time..my own.

Rainey- Wow..all these sleepwalkers on my blogroll.
Did you put yourself at risk while doing it?..Seriously.
In my 'dream' or whatever,I was making all the correct turns and such.
I wouldn't want to be under the impression I was hailing a cab,when in fact I was standing in the middle of the railroad tracks.
Know what I'm sayin'?..

You often remind me of John Prine:
"Woke up this morning,
put on my slippers,
walked in the kitchen,
and died."

 
At 6:16 PM , Blogger Sling said...

citizen- Which reminds me of Sting's song lyrics,..'Woke up in my clothes again this morning,..don't know exactly where I am!'..

Naked. You're lucky your head was the only thing that got hurt.

JP- ..first thing I checked when I woke up.

*giggles* (Well, you said it was okay to laugh. *smiles*)

Hope your noggin is feeling better by now... :)
