Quiet Please

There are four of us in the room. Me, her, one white rottweiler and one black rottweiler.

I'm asleep, lying on my stomach with my arms wrapped around my pillow.

I rise up on my forearms and look to my right at the love of my life. She's still awake. Watching TV.

"Whoever is growling, grumbling or snoring needs to STOP." In my most irritated tone.

I've been rustled from dreamland. Damn them. Waking me up. They are all three looking at me.

She's stifling her laughter.

I keep looking at her as my brain comes out of the fog. The room is silent. The TV's volume is so low that I can't even hear it.

She can't control her laughter.

A smile crosses my lips as I realize what has just happened.

I snored so loud that I woke myself up.

I thought we could use a little levity around here. ;) Things have been kinda heavy lately.

Jen said...

***laughing***

I've done that too! But, unfortunately, I KNEW it was ME and not anyone else . . .

That's awesome. At least I'm not alone.

I have a snoring alert system that wakes me up when I snore too loud. My wife. She can and will throw an elbow to make it stop. :)

That is too funny though.

Real Live Lesbian said...

Jen: You are sooo not alone!

G-man: Mine doesn't wake me. She just laughs at me.

Jay said...

As my mother lays back in her recliner and begins to drift off for her afternoon nap she sometimes will snort and wake herself up. It slays me every single time. LOL ;-)

Leighann said...

I laugh at my husband for that very same thing!

Raven said...

LOL...been there, done that. Of course I never ever admit to it!

Real Live Lesbian said...

Jay: I'm sure she's happy to amuse you. Almost as funny as a fart. Almost.

Leighann: So when we start sleeping together, you'll not be mad at me for snoring? LOL

Raven: Admitting that you have a problem is the first step...

mackeydoodle said...

My hubby does that all the time.
My kids were telling me the other day thatI snore.....I refuse to believe that:)

RockDog said...

I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one who does this...not that I admit to it often.

coffeypot said...

You must be my alter ego. I've done that so many times that, even if someone else is making the noise, I just assume it's me and apologize and go back to sleep.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

AHAHAHAHAHAH. my friend landon farts so loud he wakes himself up. he is proud of this

Trée said...

That is funny stuff. I've done that before on airplanes, then quickly look around to see who is smiling at me. :-D

Biscuit said...

I was just talking to a friend about that yesterday! I do that occasionally. I only snore once, and it startles me.

Yesterday, I woke up from a nap because I choked on my saliva and it kicked off a coughing fit.

Sex-ay....

Seraphine said...

most people snore
lying on their backs.
are you *sure*
it was a snore?

Real Live Lesbian said...

Mackey: You KNOW the little brats lie!

Rockdog: Good company!

Coffey: I'll probably get there myself...very soon.

Tequila: Please pray that this doesn't happen to me!

Tree: Good thing I don't fly much!

Biscuit: You're still sexy!!!!

Seraphine: Oh yeah...she would have been hysterical if it wasn't!

Tammie Jean said...

Ha! That's hilarious!

Doc said...

Eerily similar to a situation that happened to me last week... Except she wasn't laughing...

motherx said...

Thats so funny! when D snores I end up pinching him and going to the other end of the bed. When he says Ive been snoring, I say "I havent!" I will say though he snores like a LION, hes lucky I havent murdered him.

random moments said...

Priceless! That's the cutest thing I ever heard. :)

Suze said...

I've done that many times, I usually do it when I have been fighting against sleep.

Alex laughs at me too. :)

Real Live Lesbian said...

Tammie Jean: Humor at my expense...my favorite!

Doc: I'll laugh FOR her!

Motherx: I denied it until this point, too.

Random: Aww...shucks!

Suze: I'm in good company then.

The problem with waking a snoring loved one- you know they are getting a good nights' sleep, and do not wish to take that from them at the cost of your own nights' rest...

Real Live Lesbian said...

Buff: That's exactly the reason that my girl gives for listening to me snore. How sweet are you two?

tt said...

That gave the the belly a good juggle. Thanks. Hummmm, my wee little Dad does that...but he never believes it's him..ha ha
You Rock!

Hot Lemon said...

I might have told you instead of letting you figger it out for yourself. I guess that makes us a bad romatical match, ay??

Penelope Anne said...

hilarious, Papa Bear does that as does Zachary...

limom said...
