Sleep Talker

Scene: It's the middle of the night. Jen is asleep and is awakened to what sounds like is her husband on a phone call. She rolls over, realizes that while he is indeed talking, he is asleep. And he appears to be having a phone call in his dream.

Grant: "Yeah man, well, I think we should be able to work something out. Just talk to him and then call me back and we'll touch base".....

Jen: Gently touches Grant's arm to try to wake him up.

Grant: "Yeah, I think it's, uh.... um,... it's either S-T-A or S-T-E... I think it's S-T-A... he touches me on the arm "Hey, babe... Jen... is it S-T-E or S-T-A?"

Jen: "It's S-T-A" (no idea what he was trying to spell for his phone friend but I decided to play along).

Grant: "Okay, it's S-T-A"

Jen: "Hey, babe? Honey?"

Grant: "Yeah?"

Jen: "You're not really on the phone."

Grant: "........... Okay."
