MIDWEEK PINTS HIT their glorious peak on Thursdays.

They’re defined by looming commitments the next day and a litany of lies you can’t help but tell yourself.

And the timeline looks something like this:

11am: “Nah, I won’t join you. Will probably have a quiet one in tonight”

6.21pm: “I’m actually feeling a bit thirsty, not gonna lie”

The justification begins.

7.08pm: “Sure I can’t skip out on a round, I’ll get the next ones”


Pint number two is happening.

You knew it was going this way.

12.52am: “MOOORE”


1.43am: “Just heading off to the jacks”

Translation: I’m leaving without saying a word.

1.44am, muttered to yourself: “Tomorrow will be GRAND”
