“It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible….” Oscar Wilde
I pledged this year I wouldn’t watch love island. Last year I watched it for the first time curiously, fervently downloading episodes on my phone to watch on the train journey to work and feverishly discussing the events w my bestie.
This year I had no excuse nor intention to watch it.
But when a mate invited me round and told me to come just before 9 it clicked. The new season of Love Island would begin tonight, and suddenly I felt excited. I bought the milk I promised him, then called an Uber to arrive on time.
With a massive spliff and cups of tea, we sat mesmerised, watching the beautiful people, surrounded by their mundane day jobs rip off their clothes, ready for a summer of randy exploits.
