While at a flea market this morning, I ask one of the merchants if she had a Game of Thrones t-shirt that I could purchase. She looked at me inquisitively and said, game of what…? Needless to say this took me by surprise, after all Game of Thrones for about a decade was the biggest show on the planet. The problem with widely successful shows and their fans is that we think each one of the 7 billion inhabitants that call earth home would be familiar with Jon Snow and his wolves. It turns out not quite.
Happiness sometimes means being reminded that there’s more to life than TV shows, that somewhere in Africa and in other parts of the world people are going about their days without a care in the world about some made up Westeros.
