So this morning Sam informed me that I'm a sleep wheezer.

me: What?!
sam: You where wheezing in your sleep again
me: again?
sam: You wheeze sometimes, but all I have to do to get you to stop is roll over you

That confused me, because I'm a fairly light sleeper and I think I would notice if someone were to steamroll me in my sleep. I once woke up because someone was using a tape dispenser outside of my closed bedroom door.

sam:Well, not roll over you, I more roll into you

and he demonstrated by getting back in bed and rolling until he nudged up against me. That or he deliberately shifts around to wake me up. Apparently this makes the wheezing abate.Ten months in he tells me this, that I'm some sort of nighttime asthmatic.

sam: But don't worry about it -I probably make weird noises too
me: I've never heard a peep out of you, but then again I probably can't hear you over my incessant wheezing

You would think that Maranda would have told me I wheeze in my sleep -we did live together for the last couple of years, but then again she's a sleep laugher, so how could she have heard my wheezing if I was awake because of her sleep laughing? Or maybe she was sleep laughing at my sleep wheezing.

me: well which side was I sleeping on?
sam: You were on your back. That probably explains it -you must have been breathing through your mouth

and with that he went off to take his shower while I attempted to recreate my sleeping conditions and see how much I wheezed while pretending to be asleep while on my back. The most I got was a faint nose whistle.
