We're all Daves now.
I was chatting to a dear friend called Dave (not that Dave).
I asked him if he was annoyed that 'Dave' was now synonymous for irresistable, smug, born again, neo liberal conservatives who will quite possibly take over the country at the next election.
He said "yes, it annoys me a lot".
Later on, I was brewing up some tea. In our house we call normal tea "Dave tea". It's a good honest working man's name for a good, honest working man's brew. All the other stuff (Darjeeling, Earl Grey, Lapsan Souchong etc) we call 'fancy tea'.
I asked Dave what he calls "Dave tea". He said "I call it normal tea, all the tea in my house is Dave's tea".
