“Hugh, how have you been mixing up the mundane?” asked Naga.

He replied: “I do like the idea of switching up the sides of the sofa. Particularly for me, because I have a deaf ear.

“If I was to put my wife on the not-normal side, she would very much take that as some sort of insult. That I was not prepared to listen to her for our entire duration on the sofa.

“So we tend to stick as we are. But apart from that it has been 11 months of the mundane and trying to mix it up.

“We even tried having a gin and tonic after work on a Friday night but the problem is that so much mixing up has happened that I actually want the mundane again.”

Hugh continued: “The mundane is now the mixing up. The same places on the sofas, completely normal, television on, probably not talking very much and we’re very comfortable in that situation.”

As Hugh went on, Naga began to make a loud snoring noise.

She then joked: “Sorry, let me wake up!”

Thankfully, Hugh saw the funny side and the pair both began to giggle.
