I couldn't fall asleep in my bed and it was late, so I went downstairs to sleep on my family room couch. It is much cooler downstairs than upstairs in my house (so annoying!) so I wrapped myself up in my blanket. I was still cold so I did something I always tell my kids NOT to do. I covered my head with the blanket and tucked it under my head. Finally I felt warm.
I must have fallen asleep shortly after, because I truthfully don't totally even remember doing it. All I remember was this dream.....
My friend Aliza was over at my house. We were just chatting when suddenly I felt like it was kinda warm in the house. I asked her if she was warm and she said no. A few minutes later I felt really hot, and asked her again if she thought it was hot in my house. I checked the thermostat but it seemed to not be working. Then her husband came over and I said, "Craig, do you feel like it's hot in my house." He said no. I started getting frantic. I started getting really really hot. I asked them again. They said no. I checked on my kids, and they were sleeping peacefully. Then I felt like the air was too thick to breathe. I told them that I didn't feel well... that I thought I was going to faint from the heat.
Suddenly I woke up for a second and pulled the cover off my head, and breathed in the most amazing breath of air I have ever breathed. I think I almost suffocated myself! I was really scared for a few minutes there!
Then I fell asleep again and dreamed that I was in Europe with my husband and kids and we were in town for a few hours before we had to go to the airport. We found this small cafe. Ashton Kutcher worked there. The deal was that if you keep buying and drinking their coffee (which was the worst coffee ever) he would sit at your table and talk to you. So, I made Jon drink the coffee (cuz he's not a coffee snob like me) and I sat next to Ashton Kutcher :)
Pretty sweet dream to have after you almost accidentally kill yourself!
