Anna and Joe worked different hours and in different parts of the city. Joe would often go to the bar with his colleagues after work, driving home up the hilly streets with insouciance after a few drinks.  By the time he got home, Anna had already eaten dinner and was reading or watching television. Joe would make his own dinner, and then watch television in the den. Anna liked game shows, like “Wheel of Fortune”, and Joe preferred westerns. Over the years, they became more like roommates than husband and wife, but it was something they never discussed.
