As couples sometime do Charles and I felt we'd reached the end of the road: time to go our separate ways.
Before our 3:00 a.m. reconciliation I lay awake planning the first day of my new life. What was I going to do on arising? Turn off the cable TV service. Not just the premium channels and play when you want to see it service. I was going to rid myself of everything.
It isn't that I watch too much television. I watch almost none. Possibly why I resent it as one of the more frivolous expenses in our lives. I can live without seeing Queer as folk Season 4 (my main entertainment is watching Emmett).
If there's a moral lesson in what was passing through my mind a few nights ago you'll have to be the one to draw it.
