Dreamer and a believer

Do you guys remember the birthday post I wrote for Bigshot where I talked about how we both have grown to love the flaws as well as the merits equally for the past two years? I’ll still stick to what I said earlier BUT there is this one particularly annoying thing about Bigshot which as a human being who believes in ghosts and spirits can’t really seem to love. In fact, I can go ahead and say that I hate it.

You see, nowadays, we both sleep the moment we hit the sack, mainly because of how tired we are or how much sleep deprived  we have become, but it’s almost always Bigshot who starts snoring before I can go to sleep. Even though his snoring was a concern to me initially, I somehow got so used to it that ,now, it might be difficult to sleep without the sweet noise of his low pitched vibration of his throat and blocked upper airway. Yes, I might have googled and researched about snoring for a while now.  Also, if any of you’re thinking, I know I’m not a perfect sleeper either, I know that occasionally I’ve been snoring and there are recordings of it as proof and I also know that I get up from my deep sleep sometimes screaming my lungs out having had a terrible dream.

Now what Bigshot does when he wakes up from a bad dream is something which is way beyond my understanding. Let me boil it down for you. First of all, you will have no idea that he has woken up from a bad dream because he will not make any noise or scream as a repercussion of it. The only reason that you will be aware of him waking up is his sudden movement. He will simply get up from his sleep to sit up straight and starts pointing his finger at different parts of the room. The moment I realize he is up, I’ll try to get him to relax and will do my level best to make him lie down back without freaking out on my own about the fact that he might have seen a spirit to whom he might be be pointing towards. As I take so much of effort to make him stop pointing his hands at different parts of the room, with his half closed eyes, he will look at me for a fraction of second only to look at that spot again and point towards it, this time with a feeble murmur.

The same thing happened yesterday night when he sprung his entire upper half of the body at a go, only to point at the windows this time. Seeing him get up so fast pointing his finger just like that made me wake up from my sleep as if I’ve been sleeping with an actual ghost and do this.

And why he always ends up seeing such dreams at the odd hours of night really bothers me too. The rather spooky thing about this whole horrific incident ,however,  is that he doesn’t remember any of it the next day morning. In fact, as I narrate the entire incident the next day morning, he will go on to tell me it’s not true or I’m lying or act really surprised. I get a feeling sometimes that he is actually proud of his previous night’s theatrical performance for reasons I’ll never know. As I lay in the bed yesterday night with eyes wide open after exhausting my energy to move his body back to the bed, I knew I wouldn’t be able to sleep for a while. I kept looking at the room and the windows as if somebody is watching me. But as Bigshot slowly drifted into a deep sleep, he started snoring, only to have put me back to my sleep. Do any of you go through the same or similar dream pattern or is it just exclusively patented by Bigshot?

Anyway, I hope y’all have a great day/ good night and have a wonderful weekend ahead 🙂
