She calls her husband over and points out this activity, his gaze meanwhile has focussed on activities on the local golf course. The woman suggests they should go out and head in to change. The woman emerges dressed for tennis while her husband is dressed for golf. She fails to persuade him to play tennis and he heads off to the local course where he joins three other golfers in a game. Reluctantly, the woman goes to the tennis court but has to sit and watch. The man enjoys his game and joins his fellow players in a drink. The woman, who has fallen asleep, wakes up at a deserted court and heads home. The woman falls asleep in the garden after venting her anger on soft furnishings. The man returns and smokes a pipe.
