Mark Baggley: Diet Tables
Here Mark describes having to eat on separate ‘Diet Tables’
TranscriptThey actually had, thinking back about it, makes me think, my God, they actually had diet tables, where if they decided you were overweight, you ate separately from the rest of the school. We had two tables, and I seemed to be in there quite a lot of the time, really. And I remember, if you couldn’t have the main course – we seemed to eat corned beef until it came out of our ears, and to this day now, I wouldn’t touch corned beef, it just brings back – oh my God, diet tables and stuff like that.
