many years ago someone told me that i should curse and spit in the case of having ghost-on-bed kind of nightmare (sleep paralysis the doctors would say). since then i curse when it happens. and it works. and i realized that i always using dialect of lanzhou, my hometown, during this situation, despite i have been relocated to beijing since 1999. people who share a room or bed with me also told me that they hear that from time to time.
during this recording i have tried to perform more variations but finally have to admitted that i’m not a good swearer. the ghosts must feel boring.

许多年前有人告诉我,做噩梦鬼压床(就是医生说的睡眠麻痹)的时候,我应该骂人和吐吐沫。从那以后我就在做噩梦的时候咒骂。还挺管用。我发现我总是用兰州方言骂的,尽管从1999年就已经搬家到了北京。和我同屋或者同床的人告诉我,他们有时候会听见这个。
录音时我试过骂得变化多些,但最终我得承认自己不是一个善于骂人的人。
那些鬼魂一定觉得太单调了。
