Thank you for all your cute sleep-talking stories! For those asking, yes I asked consent before posting this. The art had to be shared.

My wife sat bolt upright in bed one night & pronounced with some indignation “you can’t call a cat Justin!!” and then just lay back down snoring.

My mum found me sobbing in my sleep once as a teenager, and when she tried waking me, I sat up and shouted, “NO! Sheep CAN be lawyers!” And then fell back asleep. Obviously suuuper disturbed about the lack of ewe-quality in the law profession 😂

My husband talks in his sleep too so I turn it into story boards using the most unattractive photos I have of him throughout our relationship.
