"What shall we ever do?"
The hot water at ten.
And if it rains, a closed car at four.
The answer to this existential lament is, in another massive anticlimax, a suggestion of routine.`
Tea at ten is a suggestion that the couple likes to sleep a lot.
Driving in a closed car is yet again an example of turning your back to nature and fertility.
