To sleep, perchance to dream?

The irritating sound of snoring broke the silence of the night for the third time.
"You're snoring again," I hissed.
"I know I am, I'm awake," came the reply.
"You can't be awake if you're snoring," I objected.
"Yes I can, that was a recording," he said as he turned over and prepared to go back to sleeping and snoring again.

ROFL!!! At least you both have a sense of humour!

I've often woken myself up snoring, by the way, so I can know that I'm snoring and yet still be awake. I hate it. Nothing you can do, though, sadly.

That's amazing, Jay.

I'm the same as jay in that respect.

Although, once I was sharing a room on holiday, and one of my room-mates was talking to himself in his sleep. Except it turned out that he was asking me to stop snoring. I still thought he must be asleep, because as far as I was concerned I was awake and couldn't hear my snoring.

It was bizarre - it turned out I HAD been asleep and snoring, so perhaps I'd just been dreaming that I was awake?

It's getting complicated, Trousers!
