I'm Not Sleeping

Do you have one of these in your living room?

Husband's Recliner

If you do, then I'm guessing you also have one of these:

This is NOT my Hubs, but you get the idea.

Picture this, if you will, which is a fairly regular conversation between The Hubs and Me.

It's 9:30 or 10pm at night. The Hubs is in his recliner and I'm on the couch, when I hear his breathing change--a telltale sign that he has fallen asleep, yet again.

Me: John

Hubs: *breathing and not responding*

Me: (louder this time) JOHN

Hubs: *still breathing and not responding*

Me: (louder still) JOHN!

Hubs: What? What the? What?

Me: You were sleeping.

Hubs: No I wasn't.

Me: Yes, you were. I called your name three times. Three. Times.

Hubs: Whatever, I heard everything.

Me: Um, OK. Why don't you go to bed?

Hubs: *glances at clock*  It's too early to go to bed.

Me: But you were sleeping.

Hubs: Whatever. No I wasn't.

Me: Whatever. Yes, you were. Why can't you just admit you are tired and go to bed?

Hubs: It's too early to go to bed. If I go to bed now I'll be up at 4am.

Me: What is the difference between sleeping in your chair and sleeping in bed?

Hubs: It's not the same thing, and I wasn't sleeping.

Me: It IS the same thing--the only difference is in the geography. You were sleeping. If you're tired just go to bed.

Hubs: Whatever. I wasn't sleeping.
