pillow talk

Sometimes when husbands accidently half-wake up their wives from their sleep in the middle of the night, comedy ensues. Such was the case last night...

It was 1AM, and Steph had been sleeping for a couple hours. I couldn't fall asleep, and must have bumped her and she kind of startled awake from a dream or something. As she was falling back to sleep, this is the "conversation" that took place:

Steph (in a groggy, I'm not at all awake sort of voice): "You have to take the horse up and back into there and back...."
Me: "What?"
Steph: "You have to take the horse for and to the back to be up and in the stall....."
Me (in a, this should be good entertainment sort of voice): "What's wrong with the horse?"
Steph: "He's really skinny"
Me: "He's skinny?"
Steph: "The horsey is really skinny"
Me: "Why is the horsey skinny?"
Steph: "Because no one is feeding the horsey"
Me: "They're not - why aren't they feeding the horsey?"
Steph: "I don't know...."
Me: "Does the skinny horsey have a name?"
Steph: "No...."
Me: "Why not?"
Steph: "I don't know"
Me: "You should name the horsey"
Steph: "Huh?"
Me: "Why don't you name the horsey?"
Steph (in a fully alert, realizing she has just been having a ridiculous conversation sort of voice): "YOU'RE NOT A VERY NICE PERSON YOU KNOW THAT!!"

Ah, such good fun....
