Just breathe

Did anyone else find this a little strange? Especially since the last time Lee touched Helen, in class, she had a bit of a meltdown.

It sounded like something melted down this time too.

The good … &, equally, the bad … thing about radio is that youur imagination is unrestricted.

The really interesting thing is that she pressed against his hand on the exhale not the inhale. She really is unlike anyone else, because everyone else’s chest expands when they fill it with air and deflates when they empty it, but hers apparently does the opposite.

I’ve seen that happen when people breathe entirely with the diaphragm rather than using the rib cage - the chest shrinks as the ribs are sucked in (and the lungs expand by being pulled downwards). That’s usually associated with very unfit people.

It’s typical manipulative Helen, the ‘touch me, don’t touch me’ message. Note she crowbarred the Dead Brother card in too and we got a ‘sorry Helen’ or words to that effect from Lee. He seems constantly to be apologising to her, for touching her last time, for telling off the thug Henwee … she’s got him just where she wants him. That’s why I don’t think, in spite of whinges about his ex, that he is another Rob. He might be another Greg, though. There was a man who let Helen interfere with him, his ex and his children. Be very, very careful, Lee!

He’ll be found in a shed having kicked himself to death, you mean?

Do we know how old his children are? I don’t think we need another combined family storyline, a la Will, although the writers do appear to have completely forgotten about that altogether.

There are 1d6 of them, each 2d6 years old, or to be filled in as required by the scriptie of the week.

(This is gamer jargon for “roll a six-sided die” and “the sum of two six-sided dice” respectively.)

I don’t know about strange, but it’s not advice any responsible person should be giving to Helen.

I dunno. If she were underwater, or in a burning building…

I think the elder is 12.
And no, we don’t need any more brats.
