Looking at the title of the text try to predict what this text is about .(The text based on a real person from Edinburgh). What kind of lifestyles do you think this man has?
A COUCH POTATO
Forty-three-year-old Brian Blakey from Birmingham is sitting on his sofa and telling me the story about his perfect day.
When I wake up I don’t get up immediately. I turn on the television and watch the children’s programmes and old movies until about half pest ten. Then I get up, go downstairs and switch on the telly. For lunch, I have biscuits and a glass of milk, and I watch the news. In the afternoon, I often watch another old film – they’re showing ones at the moment. In the evenings, I often watch soap opera or sport and the news again. I like the main news at six o’clock. At nine thirty, if there’s a good play on BBC2, I switch over and watch it. Then at night I watch more films and usually switch off the telly at about two o’clock. I never watch TV all night.
I watch TV for sixteen or seventeen hours a day. I also do some exercises every day. I take Tina, the dog, for a walk every afternoon. I don’t go far, of course. I walk to the wall outside my house. I always take my portable telly and sit on the wall while the dog walks round the circle.
Of course, I couldn’t live these lifestyles without a good wife. She’s not at home now because she’s working, but she always makes my meals. We haven’t got much money, you know, but we’re happy.
