I remember this one night I was lying next to my husband...He doesn't do this very often but sometimes he will have a tendancy to start a conversation with you in his sleep...It was too funny the one conversation he tried to have with me lol! My husband is a welder by profession: He welds pits for grain oggers any ways he says to me I know how this one line should look....I scratched my head and asked him pardon what did you say? He says it makes more sense don't you think to weld it this way? Oh my was too funny he got into great detail that is all I can remember was awhile ago this happened

I love when my husband does this. When we were newly married I used to try and get information out of him, like - where you dreaming of another woman, do you love me, bad stuff like that ( I know, it wasn't right, and what if I got an answer I didn't like!!!). Anyway, he still does it. After we watch a good action movie or a WWII movie, he starts talking in foreign languages. Sometimes he gets in violent fights (he's very mild mannered by natures) or the other night he woke up saying buggedy buggedy boo and I answer back, then he said hammana hammana ham and I answered back and it went on for a few more mintues. I love my hubby. Look for one of my discusisons about 'My husband mowed the lawn' if you want a few more laughs.

That is too cute lol...And it's also funny to see their reaction in the morning the puzzled look on their face like huh? what are you talking about...Thanks for that I will go check it out hun..Don't feel bad about asking questions like that when you were first married..My husband and I were split up for a few years and got back together this was before we were married..I did the same thing as he was married before...

oh my gosh, i tell you i am a sleep talker..:D i cannot lie to my partner sure do he will catch me when i go to sleep..i dont know whats my problem but its so rare that i dont talk during sleep and many times my husband would talk to me and he says i was responding to every question he ask me..he will just tell me in the morning that he had a sweet talk with me during my sleep and he will make fun of me sometimes..some say, its because of stress why people talk during their sleep and guess what? i am not just talking i am a sleep walker too..ugh!

It occasionally happens when my boyfriend is stressed from work or he is thinking too much of work. He even told me that this is how it should be done. when i ask again he says that it is simple and possible to retrieve it... when i ask him about what he said while eating breakfast he cant remember anything at all.

My partner loves to tell the story about me talking in my sleep about the penguins in the back yard! I have no recollection of this conversation as I was quite obviously asleep! My mum and my sister used to yell at each other in their sleep when we all lived together years ago, that was pretty funny, they would have full on arguments while they were asleep in different rooms

hi Cassy that is funny lol...Some of the conversations or things we talk about in our sleep have to wonder sometimes what the person is dreaming about..A friend of mine had a nightmare so to speak one night that turned into a comedy..She dreamt we were protecting our selves with zuccinies never laughed so hard in my life..thanks for your response

I think it's a natural thing because my husband has told me I've talked to him as well...it's strange sometimes how our minds work when we are asleep

When I was growing up, my brother both talked and walked in his sleep. (My parents had to build a gate across the top of the stairs on the second floor) The strange thing was that you could get info from him when he was answering questions in his sleep that he wouldn't tell you when he was awake. When he was about ten years old, he got a nasty gash on one leg which required a trip to the hospital but he never gave a satisfactory explanation. Just said he fell or something not very plausible. Around that time, he awoke screaming "don't throw that javelin near me". Turned out, he and his friends were using the track equipment at the playground without supervision and he got hurt. He was afraid to tell my parents becuse he thought they wouldn't let him go to the playground anymore.

I have a friend who sleep talks and a few years back, she was cheating on her boyfriend. She got caught through a "conversation" she had with her boyfriend. She was telling "Jack" he was going to have to move on. Funny thing is, her boyfriend's name was Paul. :-) That's just crazy!

I have heard a number of people talk in there sleep lol. I know i have heard my daughter do it alot. It is usually about events of that day but sometimes i have not got a clue of what she is talking about. Sometimes i find that people talk in there sleep when they have alot on there mind. I do recall one time when my boyfriend and i had shower together about 4 in the morning and he asked me sometime the next day did i have a shower last night lol. That was too funny he must have been showering in his sleep he dont remember it he thought he was dreaming.

Walk, Talk, Dance, Cry....you name it, someone in my family does it. We found my brother in his underwear "mowing" the lawn at 5am with an invisible mower. My cousin got up while we were all having coffee in the kitchen, she came out in her nightgown, purse and school books and told us all she would see us after school, it was 11pm. My husband gets mad at me cause I apparently swear at him in my sleep! Some mornings I get up and he wont even talk to me, hehehe. When I was younger I woke the house up when I was pounding on the walls in the middle of the night yelling "you F***ing rabbits, go home"!

When my daughter was younger, she was a sleep-talker. Most of what she would say would be unclear, but once in a blue moon you would hear her shout. I remember one night, after she had a long day with our family friends, she shouted "no, stop it!" It was so funny because she had been picked on all day by friends. I guess she was still being picked on in her sleep! My hubby claims that I sometimes talk in my sleep. Usually no more than a couple of words at a time. He has admitted to trying to conversate with me while I am asleep. :-)

Yes, so many times from my husband and my mom. There was this time, I was still up when suddenly my sleeping husband spoke. He was saying, "It was the President's fault," or something like that. And I thought he had just awaken and said something to me. So, I asked him again what he was saying. But when I looked back at him, he was fast asleep. When I told him about this the next morning, he was surprised that he talked in his sleep. I teased him by saying, "just don't let me catch you saying another woman's name and you'll be in big trouble. I heard my mom too talked in her sleep. And it sounded as if she's having a whole conversation, not just phrases or a few words. I was laughing so hard when I heard her talked like that. By the next morning, I told her about this and we both ended laughing so hard.

Hi blueangelrs. my brother will carry on conversations with you while he is asleep. It's too funny. It is amazing at the lengths they will go into detail and even argue with you about something. I used to sit down next to my brother while he was sleeping and purposefully start a crazy conversation for entertainment purposes..lol=)

It woke me up the first time I heard my husband talking in his sleep. He's a big time big rig and train enthusiast, and was rattling off all the parts of a train. I asked him what a certain part does and he would go in great detail about what such and such part did and what it was used for. I had to leave the room so I wouldn't wake my husband, I was laughing so hard.

Yes i have heard someone talks in their sleep. My uncle jack always talk while he was sleeping. I think in this case he has a sleeping disorder. Her wife my aunt is planning to let her husband check up for that case. It was a disturbing behaviour because someone is talking while sleeping.

yes I could see how in some ways people could have a sleeping disorder if it was happening more often then a few times...My husband rarely does it it's once in awhile my son too

My wife is a big sleep talker. It gets especially bad when she is overtired. The worst one I remember was when she was having a bad dream and she let out this godawful shriek. I just about fell out of bed. She woke up momentarily and then went right back to yapping away again.
