Hello friend,

I’ve been building up a list of my pet peeves. Let’s call this pet peeve no.1:

Have you noticed how the preponderance of vomiting in films and TV drama? One film must have started off this craze. Perhaps, the protagonist experienced a huge trauma and spontaneously vomited. Possibly realistic given the right set of circumstances. Now, however, characters are vomiting at the slightest hint of stress.

C’mon, give us a break! People don’t vomit because they’ve lost their TV remote or a clown knocks on the door. It’s boring, sloppy, unoriginal writing. Please stop.

Be happy, be safe.
