Ben and Agnes are in bed, it's Sunday afternoon, they're both reading books. The TV is on. Ben is itching to turn it off but he knows this will annoy Agnes. She likes the background sound of the telly. But why not just use a radio, Ben would ask, the images and sound distract him. A radio would be better. Agnes would pout and agree to turn the telly off and so Ben would feel bad. Now it's raining and it adds to the distraction. Ben reaches for the remote tentatively. Agnes clears her throat. A warning. Ben storms off.
