Q: My wife is curious to know why no TV?
A: There is no TV because I don't like it. I find nothing worth watching and if I am so lazy as to turn it on, the rest of the evening is wasted on pap. I would much prefer to go down the pub, have a couple of drinks and talk to real people or read a book or program some software or go dancing or many other things which you wife may want want to hear about.
Q: Why is there only one bed?
A: The apartment is quite small. We used to have a sofa bed, but more than two people staying in the apartment is too many. It is not a tenement. Also, especially with no TV, the bed gives you plenty to do.
