Lift and Roll
Mrs. C and I
seldom fight. We bicker all the time,
but we don’t fight. There is a difference
between bickering and fighting.
There is one
area where the bickering comes very close to a fight.
Mrs. C is
generally cold. She sleeps under the
covers. I often stay above the covers while
just watching TV. This inhibits her
ability to toss and turn while she sleeps, as the covers will not move.
when I am ready to sleep, I crawl under the covers. Apparently while sleeping I will occasionally
toss and turn from time to time.
Apparently when tossing, I also pull the covers with me and off Mrs.
C. This generates a waking-up elbow poke
and some half-asleep bickering.
pulling the covers!”
do it on purpose, I roll over, the covers roll with me. What am I supposed to do?”
rolling in your sleep!”
to consciously know not to roll in my sleep I would have to be NOT ASLEEP!”
what I do when I roll over, lift the covers and roll...Learn to do the Lift and Roll!”
Who does that?”
do. I lift them up and roll as the
covers settle right back.”
again, in order to consciously do that I would have to be NOT ASLEEP!”
the alternative is for ME to be NOT ASLEEP when ever you roll
over. You need to learn to lift and roll in your sleep.”
bickering may soon turn into an actual fight.
Somehow, I am going to have to learn to lift and roll while sleeping.
