adult education for Ken and Deirdre Barlow

spoiler alert; this post makes reference to the  Nov 30 episode on CBC

Adult education classes for Ken and Deirdre? Excellent idea! Adult education is a wonderful, stimulating activity, a tonic for body and mind. A way of bringing couples together and learning something new in the company of others. But what courses to take?

Ken and Deirdre have selected pottery. Hmm. I wonder if they considered all the other choices offered by the Weatherfield Continuing Education centre. 

History 517 - Waterways of the North - Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Ever wonder about the history of the local canal and its varied watercraft? This course looks at the different types of boats which are tied up in the canal and the interesting (attractive) people who sail in them. Students will be treated to at least one visit to a houseboat or barge.

Social Studies 203 - Playing Away - Mondays 6:00 pm to 9:00 p.m.
A critical look at the nature of infidelity. How does it happen? Why do husbands and wives seek out sordid trysts with different people from aging Lotharios to nubile thespians. Lectures will examine famous extra-marital affairs throughout history as well sociological reasons for 'a bit on the side'.  Camilla Parker-Bowles will be a guest speaker.  

Sports 593 - Recreational Smoking - Wednesdays & Fridays 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
All classes will be held in the smoking shelter at the back of the Rovers. Pre-requisites includes ciggies and a lighter. Large glasses of white wine also encouraged. Non-smokers welcome.

Education 073 - Statistics & Probability - Thursdays & Fridays 6 p.m to 8:30p.m.
Ever wonder what goes on in a bookies' shop? What are the odds of winning a trifecta? Or getting caught on CCTV snogging a professional escort because your husband is preoccupied with the Oxford English Dictionary, documentaries about lichen and his latest Gazette column about sewage?  You'll find out in this exciting course. Enrollment limited
