Captain Duet and now Mrs. Giggles

Jake talks in his sleep. Much more frequently than he thinks because most of the time I don't tell him about in the morning. Usually he'll say something random (generally about politics or business plans) and I ask him questions about what he's saying. He'll respond back about three times before he either wakes up or rolls over and stops responding to me. The other night I couldn't sleep and he started talking. Like usual. I asked him a few questions until he stopped responding.

When Jake and I first started dating he was not yet aware of my quirks. Especially the one where I laugh when I'm nervous or uncomfortable. Sometimes he would kiss me and I would start laughing because I was so nervous! I felt so bad. Finally he asked me about it.

"Um... am I a bad kisser or something? Because you always laugh at me."

I tried to sorta-kinda explain to him with out giving myself away. I didn't want him to know when I was nervous around him. Hello! I had to keep the man guessing. After a while he would say "Great! Ms. Giggles is joining us tonight."

One night I decided that I wanted to impress him so I invited him to come over to my house and I would make him dinner. I found the perfect outfit, took an hour to curl my hair even though I knew it would fall out in less amount of time it took to do it, and prayed to the heavens that I could actually make something  edible that would not embarrass me. I had only been cooking for myself for about two and a half months by then.

He got there, I made dinner, we listened to music and he even asked me to dance to Brad Paisley in my kitchen. He told me the food was good, but I still don't know if that is the truth. After dinner we cuddled on the couch and it was raining so of course he had to stay until the rain stopped, even though his truck was parked just outside. We started falling asleep around 3 that morning, which is about the time he would stay until, and that is when I was introduced to Captain Duet. Jake started talking in his sleep about Captain Duet and when I started laughing he woke up. I don't think he realized what was really going on when he woke up. I always think about that night when he talks in his sleep.

I asked Jake one time if he remembered that night and his reply was the best thing he has ever said to me.

"Of course I do. That's the night I really fell in love with you."
