The Gallery: Drink (Pretty in Pink)

Have I got you singing now? I hope so!

That song is a big ‘ear-worm’ with me. Every time I hear the phrase: bang! There it  is, stuck in my head.

“But what the Furs has that got to do with drink? Isn’t that what this silly post is supposed to be about anyway? Get on with it, man!” I hear you cry. Or words to that effect. Probably.

Alright, since you asked so nicely, this:


This is the source of much of my drinking activity. During the day, at least, especially mornings. I pretty much chain-drink coffee ’til lunchtime, then often indulge in 1 or 2 more in the afternoon.

My old cafetière broke, OK? Our kitchen is very small, we don’t have a dishwasher, so accidents happen. I needed my caffeine fix, & this was the only one I could find in town. Also: it was cheap. Which probably explains why it already has a crack at the top.

It’s my story, & I’m sticking to it.

Now I’m off to drink my pink brew and put on my Borat pinny* & marigolds to do the washing up while singing very loudly & very badly to Adele.

I am MetroDad, hear me roar!

* It was a gift, honest

This post is for Tara’s terrific ‘Gallery’ on her ‘Sticky Fingers’ blog.

It’s also for Emma of ‘Crazy With Twins’ who is having a hard time right now as she’s in isolation & away from her family while having treatment for cancer, so is in need of some cheering up.

  1. I think it should be the law that we have a pink cafetiere! It cheers EVERYTHING up….although it would have to be decaf for me at the mo. I love that Pretty in Pink Song by the Psychedelic Furs too, one of my favourite 80s films! Thanks for supporting #S2S2D 🙂

  2. There is nothing wrong with a bit of pink in a Man’s life. Indeed, it says you are not afraid to be who you are; you are comfortable in your skin… just don’t over do it!

  3. I think it’s pretty! My hubs has a penchance for pink (just as well with three daughters) and always swears that only real men wear pink! So I suggest you get a top to match!

    Thanks for getting involved with #S2S2D to cheer me up xx

  4. Thank for all your comments. The upshot seems to be that there’s nothing wrong with a pink of pink in a man’s life & that this is even quite stylish. And that there’s a lot of love for that song & the film it was in. Gotcha, thanks.
