As a single father and only child Frank and Paul had been going strong for almost 17 years. Frank couldn’t feel the two decades that separated him from his son; in his eyes they were equals. Although Paul felt much the same, he would occasionally seek his father’s advice. Last Saturday Paul found himself in a conundrum: his best friend’s birthday had fallen on the same evening as a date with his dream girl. He went to Frank for guidance. “Go and get fucked,” barked Frank, after hearing his son’s dilemma. He then got up and left the room without another word.
