i'm sure i'm not the only woman in the world with a sleep talking, arm throwing, snoring as loud as humanly possible husband/partner. so i'm sure plenty of you can relate.....
brandon does this heavy breathing, followed up with some snorting/choking sound.
and of course, there's no rhythm to what he's doing, so it's hard to listen to... let alone fall sleep to.
i've now lived with this issue for close to 3 years.
i'm not really sure how to handle it, so i've resorted to violent shaking.
I do it until he wakes up and usually say something to the effect of...
"lay on your other side"
and then he'll move around a little, shut up for a minute and fall back asleep...
only to start breathing heavily 10 minutes later.
last night was no exception...
first he starts with the heavy breathing, which turns into the occasional snort and finally driving me crazy with the surprisingly/shockingly loud snort/choke.
so i began to shake him. violently.
he stopped snoring, rolled around for a second and in an ever so groggy voice...
"if you shake me, i'll punch you in the face."
first: my husband would never actually do this.
second: i face raked him for being annoying.
about an hour later we woke up due to some loud neighbors.
I told him to stop snoring and that he was a jerk for threatening to punch me in the face.
"wait, what?" he asked.
"you threatened to punch me in the face for shaking you."
he laughed like a school girl and had no recollection of our almost bedtime brawl.
i'm so glad you found it all so amusing, brandon.
unlike you, i'm really tired today.
