I spent much of the weekend as a 5th wheel with 2 couples (one of whom was visiting from San Francisco). We are all dear friends and it was a pleasure, really. We even rotated who got the hump seat in the back of the car. But there was a moment after dinner when I admitted my addiction to TV news, post election. Part of my explanation was that without a lover, I had lots of time to allocate to it. I was roundly ridiculed. It makes perfect sense to me.
