I was sitting in the armchair, content as can be, until the buzzing began in earnest.
"Buzz, I think the Lucy episodes are a closer look at reality than you think," I speak to the empty room.
"Yeah, right," I can tell that Buzz is feeling skeptical and grumpy which fills the room with a steady "Hummph!" Buzz knows I want to explain but like a child, I wait for the listener to ask, "What?"
"Lucy and Ricky were the happiest couple on tv but in their real lives their marriage was falling apart. They acted while they lived out their unhappiness in silence. Look at them, no one would ever have known their misery. That, my dear Buzz, is reality."
Then while we contemplate this, I look out the window at the rows of picket fences that run throughout the neighborhood. "Oh! It is time to put on Oceanescapes," I reach for the CD which soon drowns out Buzz's reply.
