The Bloggess + Narnia = Some seriously screwed-up sleepwalking.


Before I went to bed last night, I read two chapters of Jenny Lawson(The Bloggess)’s book Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, and then three chapters of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Apparently the combination of the two broke something in my brain. 

I have this thing that I do every once and awhile, where I wake up from a dream but still think I’m in that dream and so I act a’fool. It usually happens when I’m sick, as you know. 

But I’m totally healthy now, so I blame Jenny Lawson and C.S. Lewis. This is what happened: 

At 2:30am I rushed out of bed because I heard that Jenny Lawson was going to visit my house. She would be stopping by in her sleigh, because The Bloggess is actually the White Witch of Narnia. 




I was excited though, because every year she has a contest called The Bloggess’ Beautiful Corgi Contest (or BBCC for short) and my Corgi won! 

I don’t own a Corgi in real life, of course, but in this dream I did. And I fully believed that my bedside lamp was that award-winning dog. So I unplugged my Corgi from the wall and walked over to the spot in my room where I knew I would have a good vantage point to see The Bloggess of Narnia.  Standing proudly with my famous Corgi in my arms, I straightened my pajamas and awaited her arrival. 

And then I woke up.


So I plugged in my lamp, fed it a Milkbone and went back to bed.

  2. I'm willing to bet that the Bloggess would really like this story.

    1. I don't understand why I didn't catch on earlier. I mean, DOGS DON'T PLUG INTO THE WALL.
