Sometimes a man, or woman, needs to work. Sometimes there is no choice. This does not happen as often as people want to make you believe, but it does happen. And when it does happen it can be good to show some support. So, when a friend decided to skip both a floorball game and next weeks free (while there was still places on the guest list) Holy Fuck DJ-set at Trouw I chose to show my support instead of yelling boooooring, which my italian friend always does when I find myself in the same situation. This is what I said:
Sometimes a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, and all that another man can do is to respect that and make sure that the man that has to do shit gets nicely drunk or high when the shit has been done.
Note that this is not a celebration of chronic workaholism, only a respectful acknowledgment of the occasional lack of time that appears in peoples lives.
