I know in the grand scheme of worry and fear and grief ,your vari-focal glasses snapping in half and in order to be able to see ,your handyman ( John) has to gaffer-tape them to an old pair of his and so you look like a cross between Joe 90 and a deep-sea diver , is nothing ,but it sort of tips you over the edge ( and I mean emotionally ,not the weight of the dam things ) .
So at times like these many people turn to ‘Ted Talks ‘…..but not me ,I turn to ‘Fred Talks’.
Yes ,the inspiration that is Fred, the maitre d’ off ‘First Dates.
I love Fred ,I love ‘First Dates’ and for this series I think he’s been away and swallowed ‘The big fat cheesefest book of love quotes’.
I think my favourite being
”Food makes no difference to the date.One person can be steak and chips and the other a salad and they’ll still love each other .”
Not if he nicked my chips, I bloody well wouldn’t !
