Tale of Two Couples

I arrived late after a long day at work to catch the last half of the Davis' talking with Holmes and the Brash's at home.

I was struck by the contrasts - Brash couple came across as a close and loving couple. Davis couple seemed ill at ease in the role Holmes tried to cast them - lovers(ing) - at best they seemed two close flatmates who had been together a long time; with all the attendant eccentricities.

Sadly, even in her own home Miss Clark was on message.

I had to laugh when Holmes asked Helen "Are you tight?"...

I think the Clark/DAvis marriage actually is representative of alot of NZ marriages.

Most NZ couples seem to have stopped having sex with each other, looked elsewhere and live like flatmates.

I don't think they lose any support for actually being "normal".

What the deal with eating from the bushy plate?
