SEAN: Who are you with???
SEAN: Where are you???
Huh? These texts were highly confusing. It was 3am on a work night, wouldn't Sean know I was at home sleeping? Why did he sound so panicked? What did he mean, "Where was I?" It was all very strange.
And then as I stared at my phone, I began reading the texts more carefully and discovered that there were some texts before those that I hadn't read yet. I was shocked at what I saw. According to my text history, Sean had texted me at 2:45 am with this:
"Leaving venue, what are you doing?"
To which I responded at 2:46am,
"Oh not too much. Just hanging out playing cards with the boys."
HUH?!?? WHAT??!!?? Why would I have said that??? When did I say that?? No wonder he was confused!!
I picked up the phone and called Sean. Naturally, he was baffled and worried as to why I would be spending the early morning hours (2 hours before my alarm went off to go teach) playing cards with an unnamed group of gentlemen. I sat there and explained what had happened... that I had just woken up and seen that I sent that text and that I had no recollection of typing it whatsoever... And that NO I wasn't playing cards with "the boys" but was, in fact, in a deep sleep and still very, very tired.
After a few minutes of trying to figure out what had just happened, we came to understand that I had sleep texted. Some people walk in their sleep... I apparently text in my sleep . And yes, that is terrifying. My first thought was "who else have I texted in my sleep? What did I say??" Then those thoughts were immediately followed with,"Well done, unconscious Mae Mae. You spelled everything correctly. You even used punctuation. Impressive."
So if you know me in real life, the next time you see me doing this:
I could be sleeping.
