My wife’s sister gave her this light shaped like a cat years ago. Actually it was one just like it because the original one broke. One day I came home from work to find my wife sobbing uncontrollably at the bottom of the stairs. I thought someone had died. When I found out it was only a broken light, I consoled my wife by saying, “it’s just a light, we’ll get another one”, but somehow that didn’t do the trick. I was in the doghouse for a while, because “I just didn’t understand.”
