bookmark of the week
My preference of all the possible characters in the Mr Men series, which used to run when I was a child with Arthur Lowe as the narrator, was Mr Bump. The poor character was always getting into 'little accidents' bumping into things. He made me laugh but also stirred some pathos as a character that clearly saw an alternative existence but was never able to get one. That's something I certainly share with him now, even if I don't bump into things.
