Over Christmas, we caught a couple of episodes of Celebrity Mastermind. Aside from thinking that the questions were easier than those usually asked, it set me pondering about the specialist subject. The assembled celebrities’ subjects included Jamaican reggae music, bee keeping, Monty Python, Daphne du Maurier, the Sex Pistols, Captain Beefheart, and Lord Elgin and his Marbles (which is sounds like another punk band!).
My thoughts turned to what would my specialist subject be and the answer is, I don’t have one. This worried me. If I was going on the show (unlikely, but I do worry about these things –whenever I see ski jumping on television, I worry that I wouldn’t be able to do it), I suppose I could pick a topic and revise for it in preparation. But what would it be?
I honestly don’t know a lot about any one thing. I don’t mean I’m completely ignorant. I know a little bit about lots of things, but I don’t have a specialist subject.
So, dear readers, what would you specialist subject be?
