One night a few summers ago my wife and I cranked up the air conditioner in the bedroom, closed the door and got in bed. A few minutes later I thought I heard talking. I crept up to the door and slowly opened it a crack and was horrified to hear muffled voices coming from the living room downstairs. Fortunately a few moments later a McDonald’s commercial came on and we realized that we turned the TV off but left the sound system on.
