I love the programme Room 101, sadly at the end of its current series (for anyone who doesn' t know, guests are invited to throw away things/customs/ people they want to ge rid of.
Stuck on my current writing, I was musing on the subject, and decided that apart from Winter (see last post) these are some of the things I would consign to room 101:
Traffic wardens (I know, I know. It's their job. But they have that predatory look, and I'm often their prey).
Seafood which comes with whiskers and those boiled black eyes.
Unkindness (and no. I'm not unkind to traffic wardens. That would be most unwise).
People who think there's only one way of doing things (their way). There are lots of ways of doing most things.
Butternut squash (it sounds wonderful, but tastes of nothing).
Speeches, unless they're short and absolutely brilliant.
Anything pink and frilly.
All the current political parties (where are the statesmen/women of yesteryear?.
Your turn now. What would you put in Room 101?
