Laughing in one’s sleep is not a sleep disorder as far as my vast research on Google goes (first page, two entries), so I guess I’m fortunate.
It’s not restless legs syndrome, sleep apnea or night terrors, so we’ll chalk it up to being light-hearted. Whew.
But my Beloved wasn’t very happy to be awakened to my laughter at 4 a.m. this morning. When he woke me up, I tried to tell him why I was laughing and I only laughed harder. I was laughing so hard at 4 a.m. in the morning, I cried!
What was so funny?
In my dream, I was in an unfamiliar, ornate living room with an uncushioned sofa, and I was apparently arguing with the creator of the universe, because the punchline I remember was this:
“Jesus, you may be able to walk on water, but you can’t chew on that!”
I know. It’s not funny in the cold light of day. My Beloved didn’t appreciate it either.
But it was hilarious — and I mean bust-a-gut funny — at 4 a.m.
In my dreams.
