Pet hate of the month

Red poppy day is nearly with us again and all well and good.

In fact for the first time ever I had one seller knock on my door and I was more than happy to give him a couple of quid for a poppy, but you know what really gets up my nose? Those glitzy 'look at me' fashion item ones often worn by celebrities - and ones that no doubt they wear year after bloody year.

And those that pin a huge one on the front of their cars like some sort of red nose, what's all that about? We get it, you bought a poppy!

Reminds me of that other glitzy fashion item, the red Aids ribbon brooch thingy. Again all well and good, but really?

PS. Personally I'd rather wear a white poppy but......

I'm convinced the wearing of the Poppy for Poppy day is getting earlier each year, seem to have seen them around for two weeks now and it's still October!

Re: Pet hate of the month

The celebrity TV "glitzy" poppies are probably issued by wardrobe department.

I usually buy one of the tie-tack type, these are date stamped (on the front) with the year of issue, which makes it a bit difficult to get away with re-using them. Without going to look I think I've got 6 or 7 of them. I also have a couple of wrist-bands.

I don't begrudge one penny of it.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

But why a glitzy one?

Just seems so brash and inappropriate to me. Nothing sparkly about remembering the death of millions, but there you go.

Magpies in mine, as the greedy wotsits are alway robbing the bird table. We could do with that cat!

Do you really think the likes of Elton John et al would lower themselves to flaunting one of those!  Wink
