    DH angry when gaming - WWYD?

    My husband is kind of obsessively playing a game called Battle for Wesnoth. It's a turn-based game that's kind of like chess, without all the pesky symbolism. Battle strategy and all that, also a bit...

    OK, I'm not allergic to the stinky candle stench. Yet!
    However, it is repugnant to me. The smell radiates 15 - 20 feet beyond the candle burner's office door.
