TOTP - Top Ten Things If You Are Nearly 40 You Wished For When You Were 8

We know no more about Owen than he is nearly 40 and used to dream for outragous things as a child:-

  • 10 - To be be allowed to wear long trousers to school
  • 9 - A hundred pounds
  • 8 - Long hair not cut short by me Mum
  • 7 - To play striker for Derby County
  • 6 - Knowledge of enough karate to duff up the school bully
  • 5 - Captain Kirk's phaser
  • 4 - A Bond girl (or failing that, one from Benny Hill)
  • 3 - A Ferarri 308
  • 2 - To be able to fly
  • 1 - X-ray specs

Mike's right - I remember that ! Caused a right brouhaha at the time, but I'll reckon there was a huge sales increase in that particular camcorder and their filter !

John. Where's your maths.
If Owen is nearly 40, he would have been born at the earliest in 1965. Thus, when he was 8, it would be at least 1973. Which was the 70's, not the 60's. Duh!
