The helicopter

"When was the last time you used the helicopter?" I asked Deidre at some ungodly hour this morning, while it was still dark.

"Huh?" she said, woken up.

"When was the last time you used the helicopter?" I repeated. 

"You're sleep talking," she replied.

No I'm not, I'm thinking.  It's a perfectly reasonable question considering how she just got out of the damn helicopter.  I said very loudly, to make sure she understood me, "When was the last time you used the helicopter – oh my God, I AM sleep talking!" I exclaimed, as I realised that I was, indeed, sleep talking.

I realised that this entire conversation took place in my bedroom and there was definitely no helicopter there.  We then spent the next few minutes laughing madly about it, and Deidre couldn't stop laughing.  Me neither.  It was very funny.  I've never done anything like that before!

She's decided to try and have more sleep-conversations with me in the future, as she's heard me muttering in the past, but never understood me, so she never worried about saying anything.  This could be embarrassing…
