My American friend spent a couple of evenings in the hotel with me during a recent stay and was mesmerised by the wholly unconscious sit com unfolding before her eyes.
As my profile reveals, I'm a fan of Vicar of Dibley. Many church folk find that offensive but, I believe, that's because it is too near the truth of the matter. Certainly the parish council meetings held in Dibley would fit just as well in Inverkip.
At the risk of being tarred and feathered or possibly even burnt as a witch I think we have to take ourselves a lot less seriously. Humour sees us through much in life and the ability to step back from situations and see the comedy can only lead to less tension all around.
