In the past few months, my sleepwalking has been almost non-existent! I have no idea why. I seem to go through phases where I’ll sleepwalk every night for weeks, and then suddenly stop for a certain period of time.
A few nights ago, I broke my “stay in bed and sleep like a normal human being” streak. As told to me by Isaac, I knocked on his door at about 2 am. He said he immediately knew I was sleeping because I never knock on his door. I walked into his room and said “I know you think I’m sleepwalking right now, but I’m not. I’m awake, okay??”
So now I guess I’ve mastered the art of sleep lying too. Sneaky sneaky girl…
Isaac said “okay.”
I proceeded to tell him, “I just finished listening to the hypnosis CD your mom gave me. You can tell her I’m not going to charge her for this session.”
Isaac started laughing and said “Ohhh so she is paying you for the hypnosis sessions?? You’re charging her to hypnotize you?”
I confirmed that this was the arrangement. Again, I assured him that she didn’t have to pay me for the most recent 2 am session, that one was a freebie I guess.
Isaac reminded me of this sleepwalking episode tonight after his mom left our house and it had me rolling in laughter. I would love to know more details about the dream I was having, if only there were some way to remember. Why was I charging his mom to hypnotize me? Maybe I should try to charge my dentist to work on my teeth, my mechanic to fix my car, and restaurants to cook for me. Apparently my sleeping brain thinks that people doing kind and helpful services for me ought to pay for it.
This evening, Isaac’s mom and I had an actual hypnosis session (which was awesome by the way) and I did not even charge her a dime. I’m just so selfless.
