with Ron Deal | March 4, 2019

I have a habit of keeping things I don't need; this annoys my wife. Once she found another receipt she didn't think necessary and I snipped. "I saw that. You rolled your eyes at me."

That, even the smallest nonverbal behavior communicates a lot so be careful. And that an honest, but humorous confession covers a multitude of sins.
