Avatar Bowl

I’ve never done anything very interesting while I’m asleep, beyond rolling around a bit, occasional light snoring and a bit of sweating. Until Monday night, that is, when I did the nearest thing I’ve ever done to sleepwalking.

I was having a very vivid dream, you see, that took place in the bedroom. Over on the other side of the bed, Some food had spilled onto the floor – I think it was a large amount of sausages, but very very thin sausages, almost like noodles. Anyway, there was a ton of it and if I didn’t get it off the floor soon I wouldn’t be able to eat it because it would be covered in carpet filth.

So I rushed out of the bedroom, in my dream, and headed to the kitchen so I could get something to hold all the slender sausages. The first drawer I opened had all the plates in it, and they were no use, so I closed that one and opened the next drawer where all the bowls were.

I picked up a big bowl and headed back to the bedroom in a hurry.

It was only when I was opening the bedroom door, bowl in hand, that I realised what I was doing, and that there were no sausages on the floor, because that had been a dream. It was 3am and I was now awake, carrying a bowl to the bedroom.

I did the only thing that seemed sensible, which was to put it down by the side of the bed and go back to sleep.

  • I’m not sure you could class that as anything but sleepwalking, and for excellent reasons.

    Did you blame Kate for the bowl being there in the morning?

  • I don’t know about you, but I don’t have anywhere I can buy sausages at 3am. My shopping is strictly dayside.

  • Look, the fact is that if I’d woken up a second time and found there actually were very thin noodle-like sausages on the floor, because my dream had actually been a premonition, I’d have had a bowl on hand already. This is proof, if proof be need be, that I’m extremely sensible, responsible and intelligent.
