(The ride home from work yesterday)
Amelia: Okay, what happened last night?
Amelia: Seriously. You woke up in the middle of the night talking about bugs crawling down the wall and in our room and you were raging about the flannel sheets.
Varun: Nooo. I remember telling you there were spiders in our bed. But nothing about the sheets.
Amelia: Oh, you were quite adamant about hating the flannel sheets.
Varun: I’m sure I didn’t say anything about “flannel” (pronounced “flanNELL”) sheets. I don’t even know what that word means.
Amelia: Hm. You said you were too hot. Also…it’s FLANell.
Varun: See? I don’t even know how to say it. I do crazy stuff in my sleep, but I don’t learn new words and change them. But I’m sure I said I was hot. I was way too hot.
Amelia: BAHAHA!!! Yes, that’s the flannel part.
If you’ll excuse me, I need to go dig out the cotton sheets so we can have a normal night’s sleep.
