Very good Annie-Marie.
I find it interesting the way that you have applied what Oscar Wilde was saying back then, to the real world of your own experience.
There is too much superficiality in the world, and especially the older generations. My mother had the same obsession with appearances, what would the ladies from church think?! You had to do things a certain way, and NEVER question why you might be doing it that way? She didn’t like it when I did question that.
The show Keeping Up Appearances was a total scream! The comedy points the finger at modern English social status, in the same way that Oscar did it, with irony and satire. I always loved watching old Hyacinth (and Onslow).
