I don't know why but I've go ta bit of a soft spot for a small kid in specs. I suspect it harks back to when my younger brother had to have his eyes tested when he was a toddler and he got very excited about the fact he might have to wear glasses. So excited in fact that he started wearing a pair of my dad's old glasses, with the glass lens taken out. When my brother's eyes were tested at th'ospickle, all was well and he didn't need to wear glasses but he kept on wearing that pair of dad's empty frames, for weeks afterwards. Anyway, I digress.
My "cute kid of the week award on Coronation Street" goes to the little lad in specs who was in Barlow's Buys last night asking Tracy Barlow for his X-box back.
