When Kirk is asleep....

........she talks. Not only does she talk, but she asks me questions and expects an answer. Happily she does not do it every night. If she did I would seriously consider asking mum and dad to build another room so I wouldn't have to listen to her all night.
Last night we had a really weird conversation. See, I hadn't fallen asleep yet but I could tell by her breathing that she already had. Suddenly, she sat up and said "It's a ..Um.. Oh, what's it called? You know, one of those counting things."
Naturally, I had no idea what she was talking about, but being a very nice sister, I suggested the calculator and the abacus. Of course these things were not what she was looking for. She said, "No, no, the counting thing! You know, where they have 5 people over here and 6 people over there."
Needless to say, I never did find out what she was talking about. So if any of you guys know what a counting thing is, will you please let me know so I can tell her next time she asks?

Jo, It was some sort of hand-held machine that could be used to determine how many people there were in a room or crowd. At least that is the best explanation of the thing I was dreaming about. I was trying to tell you but I ended up talking out loud and I was surprised when you started answering me. ;^D

Wow...you two crack me up! My sister drives me nuts and she talks about coffee, hot chocolate and cars. Once she asked me to go get her coffee...of course I didn't but I couldn't stop laughing.

My brother is also known for sleep talking/walking. While traveling once, he tried telling my dad that he needed the steering wheel. Then he started talking about a fire and that he needed to get out. Boy that was hilarious too...

Anyways...I would answer your question, but I don't have an answer. If I think of it...I'll let you know :) ROFL!

I think I'd get security clearance because I'd be sure to talk naught but nonsense. That's what I dream about. Anyway, I tend to wake myself up talking.
