The Speaking Clock

Listening to Radio 2 in the car on the way to school this morning, Terry Wogan informed the nation that voice for the speaking clock is being changed after 17 years. They are looking for a new "voice".

Dan listened to this and then said "that must be a really boring job, reading the time out all day long".

Upon further discussion I realised that she thought that someone actually sat in a sound booth all day, every day, reading out the time!!! Bless!

I now have to tell her the truth, and I might mention the tooth fairy and Santa Claus as well.

  1. aaahhhhh.

    I saw a really sad movie once about a girl who would phone her Mother every day from a call box.

    In the end you found out that her mum was dead but she had been the voice of the speaking clock. The girl was ringing everyday just to hear her mother's voice. I cried alot.
