Who Snores Now, Huh?

When I woke up this morning, the first thing I saw was my husband’s cell phone held up right in front of my face. I was furious: “What the… were you recording me while I was sleeping?”

Oblivious of my annoyance, he responded, “Yes, because you don’t want to believe (me when I say) that you snore.”

“Give me that!” I grabbed the phone from him. Thank God, I was able to control that strong urge to throw his expensive phone to the floor. “You are so mean! Where did you save it? I can’t find it.”

“Huk! I didn’t save it.” He sure wasn’t apologetic.

I gave him a long vicious look before I tossed him the phone, retreated to the furthest side of the bed and pulled the blanket over my head, so he couldn’t record me sleeping or snoring.

Stop-snoring-naturally

For days, my husband has been telling me that I often snore and it wakes him up. Duh! He snores like a lawn mower most of the time, and I don’t even complain! Well, not since my Mom told me that it’s normal for men to snore when they are spent, so I should try to be more understanding and not complain about it or hit him in the face when his snoring disturbs my peaceful slumber. I swear, I don’t hit him anymore.

All right, all right… so I was the first one to do that! I was the first to record him while he was snoring, and I haven’t deleted the videos though he told me to erase them. I kept the videos not to embarrass him. I’m not such a meanie to upload them toYoutube or share them on Facebook, and I’m certainly not going to post them here to my blog even if I told him I would if he pisses me off, and yes, he did piss me off… this morning! I recorded his snoring, because I thought it was funny, and I wanted him to see and hear it for himself. I wanted him to realize that despite his cacophonous snorting while he sleeps, I would still sleep with him and love every moment that we lie next to each other… and maybe, since now I know that I tend to snore, too, when I’m exhausted, we could include in our vows:for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, even when we snore in our sleep, until death do us part. 

1When I had gone back to bed, perhaps, he noticed that I was upset, because I didn’t lie down facing him or snuggle into him like I always do when I suddenly wake up and go back to sleep, so he pulled me closer and embraced me. Kissing me gently on the head, he said, “Let’s sleep.”

I don’t know if I snored again after that and if he woke up from the noise, but I do remember something that he said when he told me for the first time that I sometimes snore in my sleep: “Don’t worry… even when you snore, I (still) love you. I love your snore. I love your fart. I love your everything.”

This morning, I was so angry that all I could tell him after he urged me to go back to sleep was, “Don’t talk to me!”

After reflecting on my actions today, what I really want to tell him are these words:

I love you, too, Ra Hyoung Kwan… I love your snore. I love your fart. (Just don’t fart in my face.) I love how funny and caring and sweet you are. I love you even when you make mistakes or when you forget something and then I get upset. I love how you say, “I’m sorry” INDIRECTLY, because I know you mean it. I love you when you take my hand and dance with me with your two left feet. I love you when you sing me to sleep or rub my tummy when it hurts, like I was your baby, and yes, you even call me that. I love you even when you go bald, so don’t you worry and keep checking your thinning hair. I love you that even after what you did this morning, I forgive you already (Just don’t do it again. You know I hate closeups.)
