Facebook is as good for us as going down the pub #BritishDadStuff
You know that you are a Great British Dad...
...when you can't call time on the smartphone.
I'm glad I didn't indulge in Facebook today.
You can't have one little drink.

Just one more post, one more comment.
Take the edge off the day.
Even at lunchtime during work.
And we're here either getting merry or starting fights.
You know there are grifters, so watch your stuff, it sometimes gets nicked.
And all of it - all of it - is avoiding going home.
Going out on a limb or all the other things that might not work.
And you can reassure yourself, or better, get reassured that this what you do.
Because everyone else is here too.
Just one more.
Then, really, I've gotta get going.
Our lawn is permanently brown. Its arsetroturf. And other Great British Dad thoughts 92-98
