Friday Funnies is a chance to share your wild and crazy stories. Whether it’s a personal story or just something that strikes you as funny. Let’s laugh and have some fun, but keep it clean, cuz I’m a watchin’ **wink wink**
You may remember the story I shared about my talking in my sleep about a chocolate camera? Well, I’ve been known to walk in my sleep as well as talk. Boy, I think I’ve scared my family a few times, but here’s one of them.
Up north visiting my Grandma, I had a tendency to get over tired playing outside all day long with the neighborhood kids. Well, one night, I was especially tired, I guess. At least, that’s why my grandma explained my antics.
My grandma’s house was the second house from the end. My friend Joey lived in the end house. The other side of grandma’s house was occupied by the Johnson’s. They had older kids, so I didn’t bother them too much, for the most part.
One night, I dreamt that I was next door at Joey’s house knocking on his front door to ask him out to play. Now, in my dream it was light out, so maybe mid-day? And it was hot if I remember correctly as well.
Joey didn’t answer. So, with slouched shoulders, I moped back home trying to figure out what I could do to entertain myself.
The next thing I know, I’m standing in the cold, muddy flowerbed, in front of Mr. Johnson’s picture window. But it was NO DREAM, I was really doing it. It was dark, cold, and drafty. I looked down and I’m in my nightgown. I scan the area and see that it’s quiet and I’m alone.
Not a good feeling.
The front porch light clicked on and Mr. Johnson asks, “Who’s out there?”
His wife leads me into their house and they call my grandma. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson walked me next door to my grandma’s house. By then I was fairly awake, but still very confused.
The next morning Joey said that they had heard someone pounding on their front door in the middle of the night but didn’t dare answer it. So, my grandma guessed that on my way home I accidentally walked passed our house to Mr. Johnson’s house.
From that night forward, grandma and grandpa put knives in door frame way up out of my reach so I couldn’t pull the door open.
I can laugh now, but WOW, how scary is that to be roaming around a town in the middle of the night in a nightgown? Jeepers.
