Imagine if all of the strange things you mumble (emphasis on strange) while you sleep somehow were recorded and made public for posterity. Sleep Talkin’ Man is a blog devoted to the weird and incredibly funny stuff Adam Lennard , described as “a mild-mannered British man,” says while slumbering.
Every night, Adam’s wife sets up a voice-activated tape recorder and awakes to find a series of sleepy gems that she later posts online. The results are priceless streams-of-unconsciousness: “I can’t control the kittens. Too many whiskers! Too many whiskers!”; “I’ve got a really terrible, terrible feeling about this custard tart. Terrible”; “Elephant trunks should be used for elephant things only. Nothing else.” To his credit, Adam is cool with it. His wife’s blog may seem like a bad dream, but apparently, he’s had worse.
