I woke myself up this morning by suddenly shouting ‘NO!’
I was still in hospital after having had my tonsils out yesterday and Fat Sister was staying with me. She woke with a start too, and asked, in an understandably alarmed tone, what was wrong.
So I had to explain that I’d shouted ‘NO!’ because someone had rolled their ‘r’s in my dream.
Why rolling ‘r’s gets me and my tics so excited is a complete mystery, and I definitely can’t recall any other time when I’ve reacted like this to something happening in a dream.
It made me laugh, but it made Fat Sister sigh with despair as she rolled over and went back to sleep.
