Reflections from a fellow Cure-loving Dad at School drop off

Don’t you love it when you find a similarly minded person? Someone you share common interests with?

This morning at school drop-off, I enjoyed a good laugh and reflection with a fellow dad at the school.

He shares my interest in music. We are both “young at heart”. Our wives would probably call it “immature”!

In his younger years, my  fellow father friend was heavily “into” different music scenes – including the music of The Cure.

My fellow Cure-loving school dad friend (I’ll not reveal his identity) told me how he really related to a recent post I wrote about how I still loved listening to the music of The Cure.

We spoke about Robert Smith and the evolution of the image of The Cure.

My friend  shared how when he was at school, he had the “more conservative” haircut of “early Robert Smith”.

As soon as he was out of school he went for the more extreme Robert Smith look – with the long messy hair and a dark trench coat.

I explained that when I worked as a lawyer, I found the suited Tony Hadley look from Spandau Ballet fitted in with my professional career image! So impressionable!



Our wives laugh when my friend and I  as dads remember our younger, “wilder”  and oh-so-fashionable years!

Anyway, my friend shared how the first he rocked up to university with his carefully-crafted more extreme Robert Smith look.He claims he has no photos of the look! 🙂 I’ll have to ask his wife!


My friend was studying engineering at university  – and the lecturer took one look at his Cure look  and told him:


“The Art department is over in there!”

You are probably not the only person who enjoys these memories. Please share this with someone you think will get a smile from it!

These days, lots of people and organisations need help with how to COPE with too much work, too much information, too many meetings, delivering difficult news, business writing, effective e-mail, e-mail overload, cross-cultural communication etc. I like to help people COPE.
