Last night, at 3 AM, Adrian shut the TV off. At 5 AM, Adrian shoved me. Sombitch is a 4th degree Black-Belt, so I woke up in a panic, sure that either the house was on fire or sweet Jesus had returned to Earth.
Nope. He was sound asleep.
Me: “Hey, what the fuck?”
Adrian: (I will quote him syllable for syllable.) “Redo matanuren quir lalalalalalala.”
Me: “Um. What?’
Adrian: “Tru natu quenta flufla lalalalalalalala.”
At this point, I can’t quite get a grasp on what’s happening. He’s speaking true syllables, but it took me a while to figure out that he was speaking complete gibberish.
Me: (giggling) “What?”
Adrian: “REQUON TURO KO LALALALALALALA GOOD LUCK.”
Me: (in tears) “Good luck?’
Me: “Want to go back to sleep now?”
Adrian: “Good luck.”
And he fell peacefully back to sleep. In this time, he never opened his eyes, never looked at me, he was dead to the world. It was only this morning when I realized why he had done this. Before going to sleep, Adrian had been watching Firefly, an amazing sci-fi/western where they use Chinese and English intermittently.
Y’all, Adrian was attempting to speak Chinese to me.
I should remind you, we only speak English and Hungarian.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. Whatever he does right before bed often carries over into his nighttime conversations with me.
He had once played a video game right before bed that was mostly about space, because though I love him, Adrian is a huge dork. At 5 AM, the Bitching Hour, I got up to use the restroom. When I returned, Adrian was sitting straight up in bed, facing me, but with eyes closed.
Adrian: “How was it?”
Me: “How was what?”
Adrian: “HOW WAS IT?”
Me: “The bathroom? Fine, I guess.”
Me: “Um, yes?”
Adrian: “HOW WAS THE FUCKING PLANETARY DISTRIBUTION?”
Me: “Of…of the bathroom?”
Adrian: “YOU DON’T GET ME.”
And then he slammed his face into the pillow and never, ever recalled doing this to me.
Any suggestions for interesting movies/video games/stories to prompt Adrian into more fun 5 AM encounters?
