We Interrupt This Program


A couple’s routine life is interrupted by an alert of the emergency broadcast system. And that’s just the first of unexpected announcements.

    Phoebe is knitting and Cyrus is reading the morning paper. A typical day in their 39 years of marriage, taking place in their living room listening to the 75-year old radio on their equally old sofa. The radio interrupts their usual program to blast an emergency announcement. Other people would freak out but not these two—-they focus on old sofas, scratchy radios, and “neighbors having their way!” Not to mention a few announcements of their own.
