Immediately engage your brain, which will stop your eyeballs from flooding with tears. Your goal is to learn something about your husband. Face him and ask him to give you five minutes.

When you serve it up, make it a big deal with candles, music, the works!
Let me know two things: Did his attitude improve, and did you enjoy learning some new details about your hubby?
