Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine70 - If it were just that her marriage was predictable, I'm certain Kay, with her middle class suburban mind-set, hairstyle and JCPenny clothing, would never have attempted to stir the pot of her marriage to taciturn, stoic Arnold. But it's the fact that they no longer share a bed, haven't for years; her one attempt at seduction failing miserably, that mobilizes Kay to find a way to not only restore sex, but intimacy into her dying union.
