Sleep Talking in German

So last night I hopped into bed at my usual late hour. And, also as usual, Tamara starts talking to me as though she were totally awake. In our almost 14 years of marriage I've never been quite sure if she is awake or asleep when she talks to me in the middle of the night. Either way it always sounds like she is totally awake.

So, back to last night. Like I said she started talking to me, but to my complete and utter surprise it was in German. She said something like the following: "what are you doing it's already 2 a.m." or "was machst du, es ist schon 2 Uhr. I guess she is somehow awake, because the clock actually read 2 a.m. Crazy.

LOL! I do the same thing to my husband. It took him over a year in to our marriage to figure out that I would not recall the conversation come morning...or when he came to bed. Nice to see I'm not alone! :)

Cute :-) On a rare occasion I will wake up in the middle of the night and speak English with my (German) husband and not get why he doesn't understand me - he speaks well enough English, but not at freakin' 3 a.m., I guess :-)
