he really won't like this...

The past couple of weeks Rigg has really gotten the concept of  "bye- bye".  He now will wave furiously with one hand, say "bye. bye. bye." and leave the room.Only to walk back into the room just mere seconds later with a huge smile on his face and a "Hi!"

The Captain was on vacation last week, as stated previously, and we just hung out together as a family...at home...because we couldn't go anywhere... because of the felony... I digress.

Anyhoo, because we, and especially the Captain, spent so much time together, Rigg was able to truly perfect his "bye-bye-ing". He must have won some kind of award for the number of times in an hour he could declare his farewell and then reappear before you would really miss him. I am sure it will be arriving by Fed-Ex any day now.

Now, I am not sure I have told you, and if I haven't, I do apologize, because you are really missing out...my husband (who really won't like this) talks in his sleep. It makes for great stories... and I do retell them and I do laugh every time...sorry babe.

So last week after a long day of "bye-bye-ing" with the Riggster, the Captain crashed into bed exhausted and worn out ( a bit redundant I do realize) and was asleep in minutes. About 3:30 am, I am awakened by my husbands usually low, masculine voice calling out into the dark...in a very high, falsetto range and flapping his hand up and down.

"bye-bye"
"bye"
"bye"
"bye-bye"

It is moments like this I do look for the Candid Camera...

In the morning when I told him of his newest night ramblings, he shook his head and smiled, which was probably hard to do with much dignity as I was laughing so hard I almost peed. (I might have, a little.)

Bye
Bye-bye!

Oh this made me laugh (in that quiet shoulders shaking way so my boss wouldn't hear). VERY funny!

hahahaha so, so funny!! Thanks for the laugh. Jeremy talks in his sleep, too. I can carry on a conversation with him sometimes, and he'll wake up with no recollection of any of it. Men...

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!! You have a sleep-talking hubby too! I get hours of entertainment from mine. Hopefully Rigg will pick it up too, like my girls. Then you will have hours of giggles.

Aww. Poor Andy. I also talk in my sleep (so my family has told me for several years now). Now I have this visual in my head of what it looked like: Andy sleeping, but doing what we have seen him do awake thousands of times. Beautiful. Hilarious.

And for the record, I believe you when you said you "might have" peed a little. . .

Cari, I cannot even express how hard I am laughing right now.
