I was walking down my road today and noticed how small everything is. Small houses shoe-horned between other small houses, with small windows and small doors, with small cars parked outside. Cars and houses need to be small, because space is a premium, and there are so many people living in such close proximity now. Small is necessary. Inside these small houses live small people with small dreams, worrying about small issues that affect nothing except themselves. I am no different; I know that I will end up the same. I may have bigger dreams, but I know I will turn around when I am fifty five and realise that it’s too late to do anything because I was preoccupied with the smaller things, paying bills and getting involved with others’ dreams until I don’t have the time to realise mine. I will die with my small dreams trapped in my head.
Random thought – American sit-coms have around 24 episodes per season where British ones have 6, and yet the number of cult sit-coms are roughly the same. How come?
List of cult BritComs:
The IT Crowd, Blackadder, The Young Ones, Spaced, The Office, Fawlty Towers, Red Dwarf.
List of cult AmeriComs:
The Simpsons, Married with Children, Cheers, Friends, South Park, Family Guy, Seinfeld
