So Saturday night Gene Genie & I, over a few wines, were slating the upcoming Monday night C4 programme all about the supposed remains of Richard III found beneath a Leicester car park.
Our condescending, scathing conversation went a bit like this:-
“As if it’s gonna be him?”
“Yeah I know. As if we wouldn’t have heard about it by now on the Beeb or the Web”
**laughing and clutching breakfast bar before taking another slug of wine**
“Yeah hahaha as if they announce a massive historical event like that on a Monday night on channel bloody 4”
“Poo! It’s probably just some tramp or runaway or something – poor bastard”
Monday morning, saw both of us wiping copious amount of egg from our faces…
Still thought the TV programme about it was a load of sentimental tosh though. Couldn’t take it seriously, as it was presented by the dude from ‘Horrible Histories’ who plays my favourite character – ‘Stupid Death’.
Turns out there’s a lot of it about.
If this skeleton is conveniently clutching a tray of burnt cakes I shall demand a stewards inquiry!
Speaking of embarrassments… pity there wasn’t a Standard in my recent HLTA Assessment that covered ‘maintaining a poker face in an awkward situation. I am pretty sure I would have aced that today when having to deal with a child who asked me to speak to another child;
“Because he keeps teabagging me & I don’t like it”
TTFN ! Xx
