WTF News: I knew it! There are strange things lurking in the sewers just waiting to attack delicate bits during late night bathroom visits.

WTF Boxing: During periods of prolonged stress or when extremely fatigued I’ve been known to shout, talk, laugh and even cry while sleeping. Life’s apparently really hectic because several times this week in the middle of the night I’ve attacked and even started punching my husband. Really, I swear I was asleep! Tuesday night he woke me up in the midst of one of the attacks and I was mortified. In the vaguely memorable dream I was indeed arguing with someone, but it wasn’t my DH. The poor fellow. The medical term for this type of behavior is parasomnia and it’s more common in children than in adults. Hopefully dreams involving fitting giant marshmallows into cups of hot chocolate won’t manifest or I may wake up to find an unhappy husband and a missing pillow.
WTF Vocabulary:Ophidiophobia – the fear of snakes. Kathisophobia – the fear of sitting down. Clinophobia – the fear of going to bed. Agliophobia – the fear of pain.
No knitting pictures to share, still working on plain old socks between track meets and work. Happy Wedsnesday everyone.
