There were a few quite decent passages, though, including this one:
I had not been to the theatre for twenty years and I had no intention of going again now. It was not even a question of liking or disliking the theatre. The important thing was the pleasure that came from not being interested in the theatre. I am interested in all sorts of things but it is lovely to not be interested in the theatre. Not being interested in the theatre means a whole area of life and culture means nothing ot me: there are entire sections of listings magazines that I don't need to consult, vast areas of conversation I don't need to take part in, great wads of cash that I don't need to consider parting with. It is bliss, not being interested in the theatre. Not being interested in the theatre provides me with more happiness than all the things I am interested in put together.
This is essentially how I feel about sports. :-) And a fair bit of pop culture/entertainment stuff. Which is bad for Trivial Pursuit, but seems to work fairly well otherwise. I remember feeling anxious when I spent some time watching basketball with Kevin last spring and discovered I liked it, and that I could easily become interested in it. I didn't need another interest! I didn't want another interest! Please, enough!
