Sofa So Good

by | 14th, August 2002

‘IT comes to something when the biggest storyline in a soap is based around a large, inanimate object that everyone hates. No, Bet Gilroy’s not back, it’s Karen’s sofa. It’s difficult to follow (or care) about this tedious storyline but apparently Karen has spent two thousand pounds in the store she works in, on a sofa that is too big to fit into their flat.

Steve took it round to his mother’s old house, where Eileen now lives to store it. With me so far? Eileen brought the sofa in so it wouldn’t get ruined and put her one in the back yard. And would you believe it? the removal men that Steve called to take Karen’s sofa away only went and picked up the wrong one! It’s the sort of plot the Carry On gang would turn their noses up at on the grounds that it was too ludicrous.

And speaking of soft furnishings, Sally’s mind is all in turmoil over agreeing to let Kevin move back in. Although he’s sleeping on the sofa, the residents of Weatherfield think that they’re back together and Sally is worried that this will put off any potential mate. No, Sally, love the fact that you’re a controlling harpy is what will do it.

Across the street, Maria
