I have a bunk bed in my room. My sister and I are pretty close, so she would often sleep on my top bunk during the summer. This happened a few years ago.
Sister: (walks in) "Chris, I just saw a scary movie, and I don't want to be alone. I am going to be sleeping on your top bunk okay?"
Sis: "Chris, I am sleeping on your top bunk, comprehend?"
Her: "Okay, Chris, I am going to be sleeping on your top bunk tonight. Can you repeat that?"
Me: "The aliens will be abducting me"
Her: "Chris! Repeat after me: I saw a scary movie on TV and I am going to sleep on your top bunk tonight."
Me: "I'll be sleeping on TV"
Her: (Proceeds to just sleep on my top bunk)
I don't remember this, but this is what my sister said happened.
One of my friends does not talk at all, but instead grunts and beats the shit out of people. I slept near him in his basement and he kicked me in the nuts and punched me in the chest.
Another time, my other friend was sleeping and I was awake with previously mentioned friend. The sleeping friend started making weird grunting noises. My awake friend took a hard pillow and threw it at his head (very hard). It hit the sleeping friend, who took it, put it under his head, gave a sigh of relief, and continued to sleep. Not so much talking, but weird as hell.
This one's from myself. When I was about 13 I sat up in the middle of the night and screamed "HOLY SHIT, IT'S BIG RYAN'S DAD!". It scared the living daylights out of my friend sleeping in the same room.
My friend Mark used to be allowed to come over whenever he wanted back in high school. I would often sleep at strange hours and he said he heard me scream out once.
"Not the luger!"
I can only wonder.
My ex-girlfriend said some weird ones. It's been a while, so I don't remember exactly what she said, because I was usually half-asleep at the time too. But the strange part is, there seemed to be a recurring character in whatever she was dreaming about. And she always called this man "...the Captain..."
The only time I've been caught talking in my sleep, I said this:
Me: ...I'm sorry.
Ex: Sorry for what?
Me: I've never seen the ending of Cool Runnings...
Me: Did they win?
Me: ...That's good.
She said I then smiled and rolled over, seeming very content.
When I was working 13 hour graveyard shifts, I'd do tech support in my sleep.
When I was about 11, my little brother (8 at the time) sleepwalked into my bedroom in the middle of the night. He started banging on my dresser with his hand and saying "MOM SAID TO PUT IT RIGHT HERE! MOM SAID TO PUT IT RIIIIGHT HEEERE!!".
He then turned around and walked slightly out of the room. The next thing out of his mouth was:
Then he got in the shower fully pajama'ed, turned it on, showered briefly, got out, and went back to bed. All without waking.
"Ouch, my Jesus."
Said by the person (who happens to be a forum member here) right before they rolled over and unknowingly wrapped their arms around me. This is why you never share a pup tent with anyone.
My friend once sat up and yelled in his sleep "STEVE MARTIN IN CHEAPER BY THE GODDAMN DOZEN!", waited for some kind of response, and when I said "Yeah OK pal" he seemed satisfied and went back to sleep.
My boyfriend has a terrible problem with screaming random shit in his sleep and waking me up. One of my favorites was around the time of his birthday when he yelled out "THANK Y'ALL SO MUCH! A COUCH IS SUCH A GREAT GIFT!" No one got him a couch for his birthday though...
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
