I’m still trying to keep pretty quiet while the jury duty plays itself out, but I would like to note my grumpy confusion when I read The Sun today during a lunch break. The big page three news is that footballer Theo Walcott has bought his girlfriend Melanie a £140,000 Ferrari.
“The 20-year-old Arsenal ace ordered the California model to replace the white VW Beetle he bought her three years ago… He and physiotherapy student Mel met at a shopping mall in Southampton in 2006.”
Well, WHICH IS SHE? A model or a physiotherapy student? And I really don’t think that, within a happy young relationship, he should be ordering her to do anything…
