Dave’s Diary:Laugh A Little to Keep Love Alive
Doctor Dave here to help keep your relationship ship shape. So, you want to keep the home fires burning? Yuk it up a bit! Don’t take my word for it, I find everything to be funny, but science is on my side. Appalachian State University psychologists say to see a comedy on your next date night.
