That made my day...

I turned on the telly earlier on to catch the Teletext. (Yes I still use Teletext, sometimes the PC takes a while to boot up!) Whilst I was making a cup of Coffee, I suddenly heard a familiar name mentioned in the background- that of my Best Man. (My only Best man, I've only been married once). I wandered through, went back to picture, and there was my old mate doing strange things with giant pots.

I immediately reached for my Mobile to give him a ring- it is a long standing tradition that I have to try and catch him out live if I spot him on the box but of course I never do as he is too much of a consummate professional these days to fall for that. (or, more likely, he pays people to take care of it).

However, after I had finished taunting his voicemail, I noticed that he was talking to Richard and Judy. (Actually, it was Fern Britton and Philip Schofield but why let facts get in the way of a good story?) As I watched, he picked up a potted palm and said-

"Look at the nuts on that!"

at which point Fern said "so to speak" and Philip pulled a face as though he had just discovered (with some discomfort) where Gordon the Gopher had been hiding all these years.

It's so easy to make these comments - and then realise as you're saying them what you're saying.

But there's posh: knowing someone who's on'telly

Liz, have they not got screens near the entrance at your Supermarket? David waves to himself every week.

Knowing Dave Domoney, it wasn't a slip as otherwise he would have corpsed. Not as much as I would though.

When those screens first came out, husband was a constant embarrassment trying to do Harry Worth type things.
