Ed Okin is watching a Cal Worthington ad on television. Ellen walks into the living room with a dish of ice cream. She’s wearing an L.A. Lakers t-shirt. She sits next to Ed on the sofa.
“You’re sure you don’t want any ice cream?” asks Ellen.
“No, no thanks,” replies Ed, staring at the television.
“It’s awfully good,” says Ellen. “It’s Häagen-Dazs Strawberry! It’s delicious and good for you.” She eats a scoop of ice cream.
“How was work today?” asks Ed.
Ellen laughs, “Same as always. How was your day?”
Ed turns back to the TV. “Eh, not too good, he replies.
“I’m sorry, sweetheart,” replies Ellen. “Is there anything I can do?”
Ed looks back at his wife, but says nothing.
Later that night, Ed is in bed with Ellen. She’s fast asleep, wrapped around him. Ed slowly extricates himself from the sleeping Ellen.
