Man up By Evan Hocking

I like to think of myself as a pretty manly guy. I play AFL football, I'm a tradie and I love having a beer with my mates at the pub.

So when I had to borrow my girlfriends car for a few days which is a 1998 Ford Fes. Well, it's a Ford Festiva but half the badge is missing. You can imagine the shame I felt driving round in this car which had fluffy pink seat covers and necklaces hanging from the rear view mirror.

I thought "Oh god. What must I look like hooning around in this car, how unmanly".

But then on the weekend while out for breakfast I order a pea and corn fritter with organic goats cheese and smashed avocado whilst wearing a scarf for fashion purposes.

If you told me 10 years ago I would be eating that for breakfast I would have said you are mad and sarcastically chipped in with "oh yeah and I suppose I'll be wearing a scarf as well......"

Driving my girlfriends care is the least of my worries.......
