Dairy Demon

"My wife loves pizza. She refuses to order it, but then she ends up eating mine every time I order it. The problem is that dairy tears her stomach apart. There are times when we debate whether we need to summon an exorcist. It’s a struggle each time to act as if we don’t notice, but we persevere, because we love her. I’m begging you, please, for the sake of our weekend, please do not add cheese. If you must, please add as little as possible."
