If you click here, you will get a link to one of the more disturbing stories in recent days. Apparently, a woman got tired of her husband's snoring and, rather than leave the room or deal with it, took the decisive and well-planned approach of stabbing him with a pen. She stabbed him twice, and then, after he fell asleep again (as is wont to happen in the middle of the night), she hit him with a dumbbell.
Now, perhaps you're thinking, well, newlyweds often don't know about their partner's sleeping habits, and maybe he snores REALLY loud. (I've heard loud snoring before, but I've never heard anyone snore loud enough for me to want to stab them with a pen.) And perhaps that would help explain it. The problem is, this woman is 45 years old. The article doesn't say how long they've been married, but the age itself would lend one to think the woman could use a little more sense.
Lord knows if I ever snore, I'd not want to be awaken by a pen in the chest, or a dumbbell to the head.
