So I was up late reading my kindle. I had a book on there and it dragged for the first half for me, and then picked up the last half. Well, I got to the last half last night… So around midnight, I finally turn off the light after finishing my book…
I am woken to Benjamin yelling MELANIE! Now he didn’t just merely yell Melanie, he ripped up out of bed too. Before I’m even awake, I’ve grabbed Lily and I am shielding her because I don’t know what is going on. I just know something is wrong. I’ve been woken out of an almost deep sleep. My heart is pounding, I have the baby in my arms and Benjamin is panting like he’s just run a mile in 4 minutes.
I’m groggy and I ask him what just happened. I still haven’t processed the Melanie part. He tells me that he’s had a nightmare and that people were trying to break into our room and they were going to shoot us. (Notice he doesn’t mention Melanie?)
So I say… You shouted Melanie. He’s all… hmmm, I need to go to the bathroom. I’m too tired to care. I lay back down and feed the baby (she’s awake now too) I feed her, we both go back to sleep.
So… come morning, he’s already up and helping Lily, I finally come around and I
demand sweetly ask who Melanie is. His words exactly? “Yeah, I knew you were going to ask that” My thoughts? Yeah and you’ve had an hour to come up with a really good excuse… He tells me that he doesn’t know a Melanie and doesn’t know why her name came out.
So I think this whole thing is funny… I go to the office and tell my mother and Jeri and Jeri says, “You need to blog about this!” Great idea Jeri! Benjamin? He’s not too thrilled and told me that if he didn’t like something, he would come in and edit it. To this I say… if he edits anything, he’s not allowed to delete anything, but to bold his editing. ha!
So I came home and during cooking dinner we’re talking about it again and I say to him “You weren’t going to mention yelling out her name to me were you?” He gave me a look of Do I have dumb tattooed on my forehead?
So if you know of a Melanie… Let me know. ;)
