Comfortable Ways to Keep the Peace – Advice #592

This one time he decided to stop drinking coffee because his eye lids were twitching and he wanted to be more healthy. This turned him into a gremlin for a while. His wife did not like that her husband was a gremlin. She let him try it out though. He would tear through the food in the pantries and throw utensils around the house.
