WIDK Wednesday and More...

"Word I Didn't Know" Wednesday:

Som*nil"o*quence\, n. The act of talking in one's sleep;somniloquism.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, © 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.
To my knowledge I've only done this once, and I ended up waking myself up. I have been present to hear others chat it up in their dreams and it can be pretty entertaining. Even more fun is to have a whole conversation with someone when they are clearly more in the sleep realm than the awake one. When you ask them about it the next day they have no idea what you're talking about. Good times.

  1. When I was a teen at a sleepover with a few girls, one woke us up having a conversation of one or two words spoken loudly like an argument every few minutes. At first we were nervous then just listened to her. It stopped several minutes later. Funny, but none of us said anything to her in the morning. We didn't want to embarrass her.
