A few weeks ago, I had the honour of sharing a beer with @Goatboy and @unionhotel* at The Arkles, before and after the Liverpool game. I was particularly subdued that day, and that was largely because the old man was darting about the pub, talking to all and sundry, especially if he didn’t know them from Adam.
Goaters looked on in amusement, making several wry comments about seeing where I get certain traits from.
For me, it was more akin to an out of body experience. I was watching this older version of me, doing the same things as me, realising he’d probably been doing this shit a lot longer, and a lot better than me.
More than anything, I thought “fuck. I’m me dad”.
What wonderful character traits and moments have made you realise this, Sotonians?
