My husband snores. For 39 years, he’s snored. The constant sawing wakes me in the dead of night and I find myself holding a pillow just inches from his head. How do I fix this without murder? Yes, we’ve tried surgery. – Fed Up in the Forks

You’ve tried modern medicine, so there’s really only one practical solution: make a deal with a supernatural creature, such as an imp or fairy, to stop that snoring permanently.
