Afternoon TV

I switch the TV on for my mother. It's one of those shows where people with lots of money are escorted round houses they might want to buy.

"My Mother: "We're not buying a house, so why....?"

I couldn't agree more. I feel much the same way about all the foodie shows that clog up the schedules. I'm not going to eat the meal so why should I want to watch people making it?

So I switch channels and my mother goes "Oh!" as she usually does. This'll do. It's a wildlife show. The schedules are clogged up with them as well but at least they're pretty.

My Mother: "What are we watching now?"

Me: "Lions having sex."

She laughs.
