Luis: So, how are the newlyweds doing?
Stevie: Oh, we’re great. I’m just a little tired.
Luis: Well, that goes with the territory, right?
Stevie: No, that’s not what I mean. Patrick has been keeping me up with his snoring.
Luis: Oh, that’s a bummer.
Stevie: Yeah, it really is. I’m usually awakened soon after I fall asleep, and then I toss and turn all night. That’s not all. Patrick also talks in his sleep.
Luis: Wow, that’s terrible. I’d make a beeline for some sleeping pills, if I were you.
Stevie: I took some one night last week, but I woke up groggy and disoriented. I’d rather have insomnia than load up on drugs.
Luis: Have you tried waking him up when he snores or talks in his sleep?
Stevie: I tried that one night, but he just ended up sleepwalking!
Luis: Geez, what are you going to do?
Stevie: I wish I knew.
Luis: It’s a little early in your marriage for separate bedrooms, but I wouldn’t rule it out.
Stevie: I’ll keep it in mind. If I don’t get a good night’s sleep soon, separate bedrooms will be the least of our problems!
