So a photographer has inadvertently taken a snap of the Government's plans to reintroduce Grammer (-OOPS) Grammar Schools. What is so wrong with that, I went to one, ok so they are not perfect but let's face it we do need something. As I exited the supermarket I was followed by two young ladies. Nothing wrong in that it happens all the time if only because of my advancing years. It was what one of them was saying, and I quote:-
" Well she was like and I was like and she goes 'What?' and I go like and you know what I so don't".

I thought any moment now she is going to call the yogurt she had bought 'Iconic' and then I would go like 'For F..ingamy sake speak English and use proper adjectives'. But then I was so 'you know what I so don't'.


It must be so hard growing up these days.
