Our Bedroom Games

Hubby and I like to have fun in the bedroom.  Here's a few games we play that really liven up the night!

Three Games for Couples to play in the bedroom to liven up the night.

Number of players:  Two, if you are counting humans.  four - six if you count the dogs.

Rules:  None whatsoever.

Be forewarned that Player #2 will look at Player #1 just like this throughout all three games.

The What What Game

Man and woman in bed surprised.

How to play:  

Player #1 (usually always me) sits up suddenly in bed, out of a dead sleep and says alarmingly, "What??" 
Player #2 should answer and sound very concerned, "What??" 
Player #1, while still in her sleep stupor, should repeat, "What??" 
Bewildered player #2 should shout "What??!" again because judging from the nonsensical answer of player #1, she clearly did not hear him. 
Player #1, who is beginning to come to consciousness and now thinks it was player #2 who started the whole thing, should repeat,"What???"
Player #2 can either repeat his answer, or, if the game has been played several nights already, can shout, "NOT AGAIN! GO BACK TO SLEEP," and roll over and resume snoring.
Player #1, sleepy, but now conscious that something abnormal just occurred, should make a mental note to ask player #2 in the morning why he was shouting "What!" in the middle of the night for no apparent reason and should resolve to not let him eat spicy foods before bedtime anymore.

If the dogs are playing, once they have determined that no food products are involved, they should simply rotate their positions in the bed and go back to sleep.

The Alien Game

Aliens getting ready to do a butt probe.

How to play:  

Player #1, (usually always me) sits up out of a sound sleep, points to the wrought iron circular design of the headboard and declares it an alien butt.  Accompany the proclamation with questions such as, "Do you see that??"  and "Is that an alien butt??"  and "Do you see the alien butt??"
Player #2 should ask the obvious questions, in hopes of pulling player #1 out of her space dream and back to reality. Questions like, "Where??" or "What are you talking about??" would be appropriate here.
He should refrain from sarcastic answers like, "No, honey, that's only on Saturday nights."
He should do his best to assure player #1 that the headboard is not, in fact, an alien butt, before he rolls over and resumes snoring.
Player #1, upon sleepy realization that she is sitting up in bed should make a note to ask player #1 in the morning why in the world he woke her up in the middle of the night to tell her about his alien dream.

Variations:  Player #1 can point at random areas of the bedroom and declare that someone is standing there.  Player #2 can respond the same.

The Bedbug Game

How to play:  

Player #1 (usually always me) should jump out of the bed and declare that there is a bug in the bed. 
Player #2, being used to the nighttime antics of player #1 should not move, but should just say, "You're dreaming - go back to sleep."
Player #1 should begin flapping the covers furiously in the hopes the bug will fly out.

At this time, the 2 - 4 dogs playing should look sleepily at player #1 and show some meager interest in the proceedings in case some food might be involved.

Player #2 should still not move, but he should say, "It was a dream - go back to sleep."
Player #1 should turn on the light and tell player #2 to help her look for the bug.
Player #2 should sigh, grumble, stand up, and begin a cursory search for said bug.
Player #1 should begin to come to an awareness that she is standing at the side of the bed slapping at the sheets for no apparent reason.  She should look at player #2 and ask him what's wrong and what is he looking for in the bed.
Player #2 should grumble some more, get back in bed and resume snoring. He should refrain from making comments about getting his own apartment.
Player #1 should turn out the light, get in bed, and make a mental note to ask player #1 in the morning why he was standing up in the bedroom in the middle of the night.

The dogs should rotate their positions in the bed and go back to sleep.

Not what you expected? Well I did say the games would liven things up in the bedroom, didn't I?

Hi Lori. My name is also Lori- bizarre, who woulda thunk it?. Love your blog! Consider me a follower :D

Unknown said...

Very funny!! But only because I don't have to sleep with you!! :o)

Susie said...

Oh...we used to play fun games like that until person number two started wearing earplugs! At least my critters still do their thing.

Fred J said...

At this juncture "Player 2" would like to introduce a new game of his own wherein Player 2 slips a few muscle relaxers into Player 1's evening cocktail - both players then proceed to have a restful nights sleep unsullied by aliens, bugs, or WHAT!s and awaken refreshed an unbewildered in the morning. I call this game "All Quiet on the Western Front".

Lana said...

Hysterical! Player #2 is very patient at your house - Player #1 would probably be banished to the spare bedroom. Which wouldn't be a very fun game!

Betsy Hart said...

Hehe! I have played the first one a few times.

Stef said...

Hahah! I love this! Player #1 is my son and player#2 is his future wife. He walks, talks, and yells in his sleep. I'm sure it's pretty comical to play those games….for a short time. Can't wait to hear more of your sleeping games in the future.

It takes imagination to be a writer and it takes a special talent to make us laugh.

Oh my GAWD, I couldn't stop laughing once you inserted the man who might or might not be the guy from the Green Mile!!! This was such a fantastic post. The only middle of the night festivities around here would be me mimicking a menopausal lady by waking up in a puddle of sweat. Oh, and grinding my teeth like a boss. If only everybody could be as sexy as me. Ha!

Ahhhhhh HILARIOUS and again -- I relate!! I do some of these things too (not the alien butt, sadly, because that is tooooo funny ;P) in my sleep as does my mom. Thanks for putting a light-hearted spin on it, because it sure can be stressful in the moment...
