Spangles Disease

I like this from ‘One Day’ by David Nicholls on the nonsense men of my generation talk in pubs, ‘Spangles Disease.’ It sums up nicely many conversations I’ve had over the years.

… the girls sitting and grinning while the boys did tricks with matchsticks and jammed on Children’s TV or Forgotten Confectionery of the Seventies. Spangles Diseas, the maddening non-stop cabaret of boys in pubs.
