#2 – Insomnia

My usual problems with sleeping are from strange sounds. I hate those mysterious sounds that come from an unidentifiable location. I’m sometimes convinced there must be a bear or caribou trying to bust in through the basement door but when I investigate there is never anything there.

    My house makes crackling noises. Usually they’re fairly unobtrusive, but every now and then it goes CRACK and you think to yourself “is this the night this half of the house finally falls into our neighbours yard?”

      My windows make snapping noises. It doesn’t really sound like there’s something trying to get in (though sometimes in my dreams it will), more like the windows are getting increasingly brittle.

        Buh, I’m getting the shivers reading about “brittle windows”.

    My main problem with sleeping is the fact that I am a diagnosed insomniac.

    We deal with low-flying planes on a regular basis. My father has filed complaints with the local air base. One of the military planes woke me up in the middle of the night. (My father saw me use the toilet that night when the airplanes flew in so loud it rattled the windows and set off car alarms in the neighborhood.)

    My apartment is in a church. You want a building that makes strange noises at night? …and then in the Winter with its steam heating? Wandering around turning off lights and locking doors, you’d definitely swear you’re not alone.
    BTW; after seeing JAWS [in the theatre, oh, so many years ago] I actually dreamt a shark came through my bedroom wall and bit my bed in half – I was on the top of a bunk bed. Luckily, in my dream I pulled up my legs in time.

    This is extra funny to me, because when I was a kid I saw Jaws in the theatre [Yes, I’m old. Shaddup.]. Now, I had never had a movie induced nightmare before, but I actually dreamt that a shark came through the wall of my house and tried to bite me in my bed. I pulled up my legs just in time to escape the CHOMP! I awoke in terror before a second bite. My bedroom was in the basement, and I was on the top bunk, which put my bed at roughly ground level, so it was clearly a land shark with phasing capabilities.

      Hmm. I already mentioned that. Oh, well. Your re-post gets my re-comment. ;0)
