A member of the household was watching some daytime TV the other day. Some type of medical show where real people talk about real medical problems. A disembodied head on the screen was talking about some of her medical-type problems.
Here's what I thought / said:
Who is this lady whose voice is filling our house with her medical problems? Do we know her? Is she a friend of ours? I am sorry that she has a urinary tract infection, but since I don't know her, why is her voice filling up the available air space in this house? Why has she been invited into our home to talk about the pain and discomfort she has lately been experiencing?
Oh, because she's on television.
