Let sleeping dads lie.
I assume your kids found out the hard way?! :smilewinkgrin:
Is there a hidden message here? Or, do some dads really lie whilst they are sleeping.
What? Do some kids prop their dad up while he's sleeping? Must be some pretty strong children out there. :laugh:
wow, lying in their sleep, hows that work? Do they know their lying?
Do you remember congugating verbs when you were in elementary school? lie ... lay ... lain ... etc.

Yes, I remember those days. I have lie/lay and set/sat down pat but shine/shone and lit/lighted still give me fits! No wonder foreigners have trouble learning English. I'm still learning it myself.:tongue3:
Yes and we have words that have the same spelling but very different meanings ... and words that are pronounced the same but have very different meanings.
Then we have British English and American English with different spellings and grammer. And speaking of spelling those French words we have adopted give even native speakers fits. It goes on and on and on.
Also there are many more variations than just American and British English.
English has incorporated words from almost every language spoken.
Are we English speakers the remnants of the Tower of Babel? :laugh:
Fun, innit. Perhaps that's why we mumbled a lot in East London!
Cheers (not a tilt of the glass, but a friendly greeting),
You wouldn't think they would lie if they were asleep.
If I'm really going to sleep - it is with a machine!!
No I'm not referring to my wife - I have sleep apnea - so I use a bipap - daily - or should I say evenly!:laugh::laugh::laugh:
I don't think Jan could sleep well (or is it good) - if my machine wasn't making noise.
PS - I quit breathing 42 times an hour - when I was tested - my son, Kelly, quit breathing 62 times an hour - when he was tested.
Life could be worse!!!
There a lot of good life applications. Like,
Gum and wet toilet paper should not be shoved down a sink drain
Children playing barber shop is not a good idea
Cream of wheat is not a good soup thickener
It's never a good idea to forget wifey's birthday----but it's even worse to remember and buy her a surprise treadmill
Too late for Blackbird, Spinach----too late!!!!:laugh::tonofbricks::tonofbricks:
Wife has the breathing machine also. Sure cuts out the snoring. What I could never figure out is why the breathing only quits at night? She sleeps during day too!
