As I wazzzzz saying...

The other night I said something to wake myself up. To my knowledge sleep-talking a.k.a. somniloquy isn't something I do very often. Not necessarily something I would want to have happen every night, but it wasn't an unpleasant experience. It's the sort of thing that happens in relatively shallow NREM sleep.

The statement I woke myself up with is, "Heh, true." Which sounds kind of Homer Simpson-ish to my own ears.

Jer says the same strange thing has happened to him a time or two. Not me. Or maybe what I said wasn't worth remembering.

Isn't it funny how you never hear about sleepwalkers anymore? That used to be a thing.

I doubt being memorable has much to do with it. The odds are against anyone saying something that isn't real basic. Although if you're heard to compose poetry in your sleep by all means switch on a recorder.

Sleepwalking still seems to happen but you're right that you don't hear about it much.
