Some of us might lay awake at night waiting for the inspiration of our next greatest success to strike. For Karen Slavick-Lennard, she lay awake listening to her mild-mannered husband, Adam, become a potty-mouthed, egotistical philosopher while he slept. Karen admits that she would initially listen and giggle as Adam would fire out his — sometimes saucy — nuggets of unconscious wisdom. And after months of listening — and still giggling — to his zany pillow-talk, Karen started writing down his musings and then moved on to recording him with a voice activated recorder, when her own sleep began to suffer.
Karen started a journal of his nocturnal ramblings for their family and friends at http://www.sleeptalkinman.blogspot.com/ and it wasn’t long before the blog, connected to a twitter account, went viral. Her blog-site now sells t-shirts, mugs, ringtones, aprons, bags, mouse pads, and pretty much anything else you may want with her husbands after-hours “greatest hits” printed on them.
A few of my favorites include; “Don’t leave the duck there. It’s totally irresponsible. Put it on the swing. It’ll have more fun.’ And of course, “I’m telling you: your voice, my ears. A bad combination.” And my all-time favorite, “Vampire penguin? Zombie guinea pigs … we’re done for.”
Check out the blog and sign up for a daily dose of his cheeky chit-chat, but be warned — there is a very STRONG language warning. He speaks with reckless abandon and uses every colorful adjective available to the uncensored mind.
I predict an upswing in market sales this quarter for voice activated recorders!
