  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Fashion by Ken Dunn on 23 February 2016 9:34am
In retirement I sometimes do channel hopping to find something more informative to watch. This morning we arrived at Lorraine on ITV and my wife said, 'Fashion, that's OK.' The programme when, we joined it had lots of skinny women walking up and down with different clothes on so I said, 'Where's the men's stuff?' Just as I said that the picture cut to a man in the studio and I said, 'Here comes the men's stuff now.' But I was wrong. The picture cut to more skinny women etc.. Then the picture cut to individual people parading different clothes and when one particular one appeared I said, 'Ah, a man!' My wife said, 'That's no a man.' (Scots truncation of the word 'not' used here for effect.) On closer inspection she was right but being so skinny it was hard to tell. After a minute or so of this parade and some comments by the presenters I said, 'They'll probably bring a man on at the end in a grey suit and give him 10 seconds of air time and they'll say, "That's what the men wear!?"'

Hahahaaa, Ken! I don't know why all models have to be skinny women. The average woman is not skinny.

This Morning have 'normal' women - i.e. viewers - modelling their clothes, which I think is a good policy.

My wooly jumper has a hole in it and the zip on my jeans is broken. I have plenty of other jumpers and another couple of pairs of jeans but the current attire is as stated in the first sentence.
