“You know that place between sleep and awake?”


Doesn’t count!”  This is what I hear from James as I’m just starting to play the second Man vs Wild episode of the night.  I’m a little surprised since I could have sworn he was snoring a couple minutes ago.  Did I wake him?  I turned the volume down and everything.  Is he commenting on Bear Grylls’s next adventure??  Is he trash talking Bear Grylls?!  Unacceptable, Sleepy James!

So naturally I respond with, “What doesn’t count?

He rolls over and in a lethally serious tone says, “The tentacles.”


Obviously my next reaction is, “What?!

The tentacles,” he repeats, sort of opening his eyes, but not really.

I pat him on the head and say, “Okay then.  Go back to sleep.”

What the eff was he dreaming of??



The title is from Hook.  Tinkerbell says: “You know that place between sleep and awake?  That place where you still remember dreaming?  That’s where I’ll always love you, Peter Pan.  That’s where I’ll be waiting.”

Easily one of the best lines ever.  Easily.


  1. Sigh. Definitely the best line, hands down.
