The Man Who Invented Christmas

"I say a lot of things that are nonsense when I'm working. You know how ideas took possession of me. You knew I was like this when you married me" Catherine nodded. Her eyes began to fill with tears. "Yes.. I did. But you have.. no idea what it's like to live with you. To always walking on eggshells, trying to guess your mood, to knew which of your commands are whimp and which aren't and sometimes I..
