We were asked in our Monday Writing Group to share a story about talking in your sleep. Here is my story:
As an identical twin, I have many interesting stories to share and this is one of them:
Mom put her five year old, identical twins to bed one evening. Later that night she heard noises and stirrings coming from their room. She opened the door and peeked in. What she witnessed was something she never thought possible. Her daughters were talking gibberish to each other and searching for something under their respective beds.
Mom had known her twin girls to have the same dream before but never the same dream at the exact same time. This was even a bit unsettling for a mom who was use to dealing with some mysterious, inexplicable twin behavior.
Eventually, after quietly observing the twins in their mystical search, she whispered, "time for bed Linda and Laura, I found it." The incomprehensible chatter and curious searching ceased and both girls went back to bed.
I still wonder after all these years, what Laura and I were looking for. How is it that we could have the same dream simultaneously.
