While talking to another friend on how one of the unexpected effects of the financial crisis was that some professionals had decided to change their line of work and go into security agencies such as NCIS and MI5 - both organisations I would dearly have loved to join as a kid and even now - we discussed our ambitious.

Me: I would love to be a field agent, getting right into the middle of all the action.
Friend: I doubt I would be very good at that. I'd probably get shot really early.
Me: Three minutes into a film, thereby prompting the main character to swear revenge.
Friend: (indignantly) Cannot! I will not be plot fodder.

Her response almost caused me to spit my drink out on to my computer. Hee!
