This week someone sent me an annoying link on Facebook. Yes, this is hardly news but it wasn’t for a stupid cartoon game, nor was it for some app that my retro (possibly geriatric) phone wouldn’t (couldn’t) support. It was a list. You’ve seen them. How Many Counties Have You Been To? How Many of the BBC Best-Reads Have You Read? How Many of These ‘Naughty’ Things Have You Done? The list of lists goes on.
So when I read the first few words ‘How Many…’ my soul died a little. How many what? How Many Colours Do I Know? How Many Different Haircuts Have I Had? How Many List Quizzes Have I Taken? It saddens me that the answer to the last is quite high. I love a good list!
