Icon by troo; quote from myz_lilith

I think "Fancy a pint?" is the quintessential British reaction to ~anything~ actually...

"I had a crap day at work"
"Fancy a pint?"

"I had a great day at work"
"Fancy a pint?"

"My girlfriend dumped me"
"Fancy a pint?"

"I won the lottery"
"Fancy a pint? (Drinks are on you)"

"My leg fell off"
"Fancy a pint?"

Pints are big and solid and comforting and take a time to drink during which you can calm down and reflect.

Peace

I think we are definitely a lets go for a beer society. I remember when a mna made an escape route via my house the police (who were raiding next door at the time) were very nice. They offered me a brandy.

I usually use a cup of coffee in like fashion but it's mostly because beer here tastes like the water they washed the keg with and I never aquired a taste for it. Unless I am mowing grass and I plan to go back to it. If I'm done for the day, I'd rather have a gin and tonic.

One of the blessings of the Rise of the Widget is that even here in the Benighted Hinterlands we can now have somethign that more closely resembles a pint, being properly foamy without being thin and fizzy.
