“Oh ho ho!”  He cried in a Jimmy Hill Stylee (cf. Eng v Pol WC 86).  Today was a day amongst days.

My Dad and me were fortunate to have been picked to audition for one of the most popular TV shows of the day.  Can you guess what it was?  No, ok, I’d best tell you.  Put you out of your misery as it were.  We were picked to audition for… drum-roll please… drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr badum-tish!  Yes, you guessed it, it was Bullseye.

Were we successful, have I stood next to Jim Bowen as he shows me the motor boats that my Dad and me have won…?  Have I bollo…

But we did travel to the Holiday Inn Birmingham on this sunny Spring day and we were auditioned, but we weren’t picked.  Boo! Hiss! Shame on you Jim Bowen… didn’t even meet him, sniff… never mind Tony Green.
