That one time I sleep-walked.

What I wore: Leggings & Scarf, AE. Jacket, Abercrombie. Sandals, Payless. 
Alright, so I'm copping out today.
We have visitors flying in this evening so I spent all day yesterday cleaning up the 
train wreck that I allowed our apartment to become. And you don't want to hear about that
because it'll just be all whiny.
So, here's what you get instead: 
My funniest embarrassing moment. 
This little story was included in the speech that got me my oh-so-prestigious high school
Homecoming Queen title, so it's practically guaranteed to brighten your day a bit. 
Let me set the scene. 
When I was in first grade, my family moved into a new house. It had two stories, 
and all of the bedrooms were on the second floor. My mom was worried about my brother and I
sleepwalking and tumbling down the staircase, so for the first few weeks she put up a safety gate across the doorway to the stairs and all was swell.
My brother has a tendency to do strange things in his sleep.
I don't sleep walk. Ever.
But the very first night after she took the gate down,
 I had my first (and only) sleepwalking adventure.
I don't remember walking down the stairs, but apparently I did.
And I made my way into the mudroom, 
where we kept all of our shoes and coats and scarves and whatnot. 
Annnnd apparently I thought the mudroom was the bathroom. And I needed to go.
Yes, I sleep-peed on the floor. 
And then, though I was still half-asleep, 
I sort of realized I'd done something wrong. The obvious solution? 
Try to clean up my mess with coats.
Yeah, that didn't work so well.
I abandoned that plan and instead decided I just needed to rid myself of the evidence.
So, I took off my underwear and put them on the kitchen table.
Why? I have no plausible explanation. 
And then I went back upstairs, put on a fresh pair of undies 
and went back to sleep like nothing had happened.
And the aftermath?
My mom walked into the mudroom in the morning and thought perhaps our dog
had an accident...until she saw the kitchen table.

    I love the look of the scarf tied under the belt here - lovely outfit!


  24. That's hilarious! I love it! I've never sleepwalked, so I wonder what I would do if I did -- I would probably read and then I'd wake up and be like, "Who read my book?" Haha!

  25. Hilarious!! I've only slept walked once as well . . . it was at girl scout camp and I yelled at another girl forcing her to give me her cot. It was traumatizing to say the least when I woke up and heard everyone talking about it!

  34. Greetings from Estonia (far corner of Europe). Have been following silently for couple of weeks, but can´t keep my mouth shut now. Lovely blog, keep up the good work!

    I can´t stop laughing after reading about your sleepwalking incident. I have a friend who used to do crazy things in sleep - like unroll a whole roll of toilet paper in the living room. And once we shared a bed (in high school time I would think) she put a lamp shade on my head in the middle of the night.

    But have you heard of the Sleeptalkinman? records ans posts audios od her husbands sleeptalks - hilarious stuff!

  35. Sorry, messed up the link. Here you go:
