after an emotional weekend in S-o-T, but I am not quite tired enough not to have to say how irritating that BT ad family are becoming. As I lay on a cushion feeling wan this evening I found that I am now being required to engage with the birth father of the children. We have never seen this chap before, for all we know he was dead, but now he has been bought in like an emergency plot device in Dynasty. The girl informs this father on the ‘BT dedicated ooh aren’t land lines so great for keeping up with your absent kids’ line that her Mam is to be marrying ‘Adam.’ I don’t know this bloke from Adam. The father looks so shocked – my God, the ex I never think about is doing something; meanwhile the Mother involuntarily spits out her wine as she hears the girl give away the amazing revelation to a walk-on from central casting. NO ONE CARES, NO ONE HAS EVER CARED. YOU’RE ALL JUST ACTORS FROM SOMETHING NO ONE CAN EVEN REMEMBER.
Note: has the Mam never seen the ad about the hazards of drinking wine, about how it makes you look like you’re being x-rayed and how it causes all your hair and teeth to fall out?
