Local systems manager, Luke Farley, is now confident enough to throw caution to the wind.

His 9-5 job as a cloud software monitor for a large recruitment company in Inner-West Betoota is now just a faint priority, as the 31-year-old points his finger around the table to see who’s up for another schooner.

When asked if there’s any chance he might get carried away, Luke brushes off concern by pointing out that it gets darker way earlier in winter, and he’s not the type of bloke who floats around the pub on a school night.

“Another Betoota Bitter?” he asks his six friends that have stuck around after lunch, knowing full well that this could easily result in six more guilt-free schooners, if it were to turn into a round.

“I wanna try one of those passionfruit things they’ve got on the menu too. Looks like a nice little cocktail”

Aside from an email that he still intends on firing off before bed, Luke has all but convinced himself that his Monday schedule is looking pretty free.

“Yeah. I’ve got nothing on… I could even work from home if I wanted”

“Anyone keen on splitting a bag?”

“I’ve got nothing on tomorrow”
