Dear Uncle Dixer: My master bedroom has wall-to-wall mirrored closet sliding doors that reflect my bed. I’m not in the home long term, but what are some tips I could use to protect our sleep and our marriage? 

Answer: You can glue some rice paper on the mirrors up to waist height. That way, when you lie in bed, you cannot see your reflections when you’re half awake and give yourself a sudden fright, thinking temporarily someone or a ghost is in the room.
