An actual conversation I had as an 11-year old with my friend Dave the morning after a sleepover at his house…
Dave: Dude, why is there a wet spot on the floor where your sleeping bag was last night?
Dave: Wait, did you wet the bed?
Me: Actually, you’re not gonna believe this, but it was crazy. I was wicked thirsty in the middle of the night so I got up to get a drink of water. I brought the water back into the room and right when I was about to drink it you said “We need to go steal the power plant” in that funny voice Bugs Bunny does when he’s smoking a cigar and I just lost it because I knew you were dreaming and it was so funny and I spilled water all over my sleeping bag.
Dave: I really said that?
Me: Yeah, it was so funny.
Dave: I don’t even know what Bugs Bunny voice you’re talking about.
Me: Ya know, (speaking out of the corner of my mouth) “we gotta steal the power plant, you see…”
Dave: Huh, I’ve never seen that.
Me: It’s a good episode.
Dave: Man, it really looks like you wet the bed.
Me: Yeah, it kinda does.
