I did something extremely embarrassing on Friday and I wasn't even drunk. You have to understand, before you read any further, that I got a little carried away with the situation, got a little bit giddy when I heard. Let me explain further...
I watch The One Show most days - it usually ties in quite nicely with when we are sitting down for tea and well, a bit of background accompaniment, never hurt, did it? Anyway, I was quite happily watching Friday's episode, when right at the end of the show, they announced next weeks guests.
I was shocked, stunned, surprised and any other word I can think of, that begins with the letter S - Mr T was going to be one of their guests for the following week.
Fate, I thought, definitely fate and I grabbed my laptop and immediately sent an email off to the BBC, explaining about my list and my blog and how I had to, just had to meet him. I got the following reply.
Thank you for your email to The ONE Show regarding our guest Mr. T. Unfortunately, we cannot ask our guests for any special favours, as they are doing us one by gracing us with their presence! We are inundated with thousands of similar requests and we would do nothing else all day.The team would like to send their best wishes to you and your family,and wish you the best of luck with your list.We really appreciate you taking the time to contact us and we hope you enjoy the show. Tune in Monday to Friday at 7 o'clock on BBC One for The ONE Show.
So unfortunately my 'Jim'll Fix It' type approach didn't work! Oh well, I guess that task will stay uncompleted for a little while longer!
