We were lying in bed this morning. I was doing an initial read through for a book I’m beta reading, and Cheryl was dozing.
Cheryl: What’s for breakfast?
Me: I can cook. I don’t really want to go out.
Cheryl: Okay, that sounds good.
Me: What should I cook?
Cheryl: (Silence, followed by a subtle snore.)
Me: Okay, clearly, you are not *that* hungry.
Cheryl: What do you mean?
Me: Honey, you fell asleep instead of answering the question.
Cheryl: No, I wasn’t asleep.
Me: Umm, yeah, you kinda were.
Cheryl: No, I was answering you.
Me: Honey, you were snoring.
Cheryl: But, I was really answering you… in my head.
