In the movie Gremlins, there are three rules given for owning Gizmo: No bright lights, don’t get him wet, and never ever feed him after midnight no matter how much he begs.
I feel like those same rules generally apply to me to keep me happy.
I really don’t like bright lights. I have a “happy light,” but I found out that it just contributes to headaches for me.
I am not a fan of getting wet. At all. I bathe when I have to. Otherwise, I’d just rather avoid water pouring over me if possible. Swimming in a lake may be an exception, but it depends on the lake and my mood.
I also shouldn’t eat after midnight no matter how much I pester you. I’ll just feel sick and miserable later. It’s inevitable really. I just shouldn’t ever do it.
When these rules are violated, I turn into something very similar to Spike. I’m mean and nasty and not pleasant to be around.
So there’s that.
All in all, the rules seem to fit.
Inspired by the Daily Prompt: Gremlins (one of my favorite movies ever).
