#1: Tinfoil Bandit
Sometimes sleepwalkers will incorporate real-life sounds and objects into their dreams. This results in some pretty hilarious situations! This guy’s wife deals with his sleepwalking shenanigans quite often, and she always tells him what he did the next day. One night, he was very concerned about something strange going on in their kitchen.
His wife woke up to find him slowly walking out of their bedroom. When she asked what he was doing, he replied, “There’s somebody downstairs in the kitchen, unrolling the tinfoil.” Sounds pretty serious. Thankfully, his wife knows how to talk him out of his sleepwalking adventures, so she calmingly suggested he go back to bed. The next day, they found out that a plastic bag in their bedroom was rustled by a breeze coming through their window. That must have been what convinced him a stranger was messing with their tinfoil!
