Dreaming of Otis

Some of my favorite moments in life are when my wife says funny things while she is sleeping. It only happens once every couple months, so it's always a special treat.

 The other night, I was laying in bed and I heard Robyn mumbling something about a baby. I couldn't quite understand what she was saying. I asked her what she said, and she responded, "I was talking about Otis, our son."

 I thought this was hilarious. "She thinks we have a son." I giggled to myself, "she thinks we would name him Otis."
This was the picture I had in my head, of what she must be dreaming about.

I remember thinking, "This is gonna be awesome to write about on my blog."

And then I woke up.  That's right.  The whole thing never happened.  It was a dream.
This is a more accurate picture of the truth
I had to hang my head in sadness.  It was my brain that invented Otis.  But at least I was still able to share Otis with all of you.

P.S. If there ever was a dream that needed analyzing, this is it.  So do share your theories.


  1. Someone implanted the idea of Otis into your subconsciousness like in Inception.

  2. I like the name otis for a son. If you don't use it, I will!

  3. You are clearly meant to have a son named Otis. Robyn just didn't dare tell you she loves the name, so she infiltrated your dreams to let you know.

  4. I'm not sure how I feel about Otis. Lets just wait and see how we feel about it when we actually have a son to name.

    Oh and that is super funny that you dreamed about me talking in my sleep.

  5. Jeffery Otis Stockett...has a certain ring to it.
