I got to thinking last night about back when I was younger (25 odd years ago) interested in pints and hanging out with the lads; there was a fellow in our village who was always ridiculed when seen out in public.
You’d see him on the street (and it was generally a ‘him’) and people would pass comment on how he was dressed, “out in public like that”, “the shame of it all”. To be 100% honest and fortright, I was not immune to agreeing or passing comment myself to be seen as not “one of those”.
The older generations would shake their head and mutter stuff about “back in my day”, parents would cover the eyes of children while the older kids would point and giggle.
Back then there was only one per village, it was like a quota or so it seemed, now they are everywhere.
And I mean everywhere!
You see them on TV (before the watershed) with broadcasts dedicated to them, they are on the street in packs, they’re congregating on street corners even meeting in Church yards!
It is no longer just guys either, the girls are at it in public these days too…
Have a great day! Get out #beactive and go running!!
(Its acceptable behaviour these days 🙂 )
