Drawing room conversation between husband and wife:
Y: ... and I don't think this whole workout thing is working for me, because ( blah blah etc etc)
V: (Nodding along, while watching cricket on the TV out of the corner of his eyes) Uh-huh, uh-huh...
Y: (snapping) You're not listening to me, are you?
V: (suddenly attentive) Of course I am. I am, I am.
Y: You don't even care that I've become fat in the process of making YOUR child!
V: Of course I do, honey.
Y: Aha! So you do care that I look fat? So that means you do think I look fat? Is that all you care about?
V: (Starts making strange buzzing sound, avoiding eye contact, shaking his head side to side) Bzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........
Y: WHAT are you doing now?
V: (Closes eyes, still shaking head) Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........
Y: Are you serious? You're trying to create your own white noise to tune me out and avoid this conversation?
V: (Eyes closed, oblivious) Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........
(Until I get tired, give up and leave the room)
