My buddy, Pablo, just got back from a vacation that took him to the other side of the world. During lunch, we quizzed him about his vacation and the long flight he endured
Liz: How was the flight?
Pablo: Great! Since the flight essentially occurs at night, I popped an Ambien and slept through most of it.
Me: It's a prescription sleeping pill.
Liz: Ahhh, that's the one with the eating side effect, right?
Me: There have been various reports in the news about people sleep-eating while on Ambien. They consume crazy giant meals at night and then have no recollection of that the next day.
Pablo: .....That's.... uh.... are you serious?
Pablo: *wheels spinning* Oh, man. I think I.... Whoa! *starts laughing*
Me: Did you...?
Me: *laughing* I cannot WAIT to hear the next sentence out of your mouth.
Pablo: This is all starting to make sense. At the beginning of the flight, they served us a big snack box. It was supposed to be our food for the next 8 hours. I went to sleep with the box in front of me, and then when I woke up, the box was empty and I was surrounded by food wrappers. I wasn't really sure what happened. You kind of wake up in a strange dreamy state with Ambien.
Me: You sleep ate! 8 hours of food!
Pablo: I can't believe it.
