Dangerous Sleeper

Have you ever elbowed someone in the throat while you slept? In my defence, I was aiming to elbow an extremely, infuriating housemate in the ribs, it just so happened that I was dreaming and my boyfriend rolled over to see what I was mutter about. (I talk in my sleep.) Hence elbow in the throat and a very, surreal wakeup.

I can’t even claim that this was a one time affair. Both my boyfriend and I are quite active sleepers, rolling over, shifting about and blurting out random comments while we sleep. I wake up to find he’s rolled over and pinned me in my sleep, the other night I got kneed in the but and he’s always informing me of the various punches and elbows that I supposedly sent his way as I tossed and turned in the night. (Somehow sliding half-way down the bed is also a common occurrence with me. It really confuses him.)

I’m not sure what I chatter on about in my sleep, but I’ll leave you with a few snippets that I’ve woken to during the night as my boyfriend dreams on beside me.

Don’t launch the rocket yet. Wait until I’m around the corner.

No. Don’t like Thomas Tank.

You need to put it in second. No, not like that, see you stalled in. ******* twat.

And so ends another random post, curtsey of the Daily Prompt. Tell me, have you every accidentally injured someone in your sleep?
