So there we were R6 and I watching the Simpsons on Channel 4 and up pops an advertisement for foundation.
"Everyone's talking about (some roll on foundation stuff)", coos Eva Longoria rolling expensive gunk on to flawless skin.
"No we're not," I yell at the telly. "I'm not." I turn to R6, "are you?"
"Er, um, maybe," says R6. Mummy's off on another rant again.
"It's obviously such rubbish stuff they have to 'enhance it in post production'," I continue. I hate those adverts. How can you believe something is worth parting with your (husband's) hard-earned cash for if it is 'enhanced in post production' or 'styled with lash inserts'. (I read a funny blog about this somewhere...here it is: Very Bored in Catalunya.)
I stomp off in the direction of the kitchen to do what one normally does during the ad breaks - make a cup of tea.
"See so we're not all 'talking about it'," I add as a parting shot, mimicking Eva's accent.
There's a pause from the sofa.
"We're talking about it now Mummy," says R6 with her usual dose of logic, shooting ranting parent down in flames.
