Muri muri muri muri!!!
Last night I suddenly woke Mrs. Sunshine up very roughly as I in a panicked loud voice said, in Japanese "無理無理無理!!!" while holding my hands out in front of me and violently shaking my head at the same time. This is a bit difficult to translate to get all the flavor right, but 無理 "Muri" basically means, "no, it's impossible" or "no, I can't do it" depending a bit on the context.
I have been known to do some minor sleeptalking and on more rare occassions sleepwalking as well (mostly very mundane tasks such as filling a bath in the middle of the night or rummaging around in some closet looking for something in my dream state), but for my sleeptalking, it's pretty clearly divided; if I speak in English, it's likely that my fictional target is Mrs. Sunshine or some of my foreign friends here in Japan, if I speak Swedish, my dream is about family or friends in Sweden, but if it's in Japanese it's very likely that it's about work.
Mrs. Sunshine didn't wake me up as I started snoring again pretty quickly after the outburst and I have no recollection of any dream but I did get curious on what could have triggered my protests. I'm quite sure that Cpt. Awkward was in there somewhere...
