A WOMAN has taken a punt on saying ‘yes’ to a question that she completely missed.
Jane Thomson recently attended a house party and ended up talking to one of her friend’s tedious colleagues. After a conversational wrong turn, Thomson found herself embroiled in a chat about politics that was ‘crushingly dull’.
She said: “He was talking at length about gerrymandering in US voting districts and I found myself unable to focus. Then suddenly it popped into my head ‘Am I speaking to Ballbag Kevin?’”
‘Ballbag Kevin’ is a secret nickname for one of Thomson’s friend’s workmates, who it has been rumoured was once caught texting a picture of his scrotum to a young intern.
Thomson added: “And that one thought just triggered a cascade of questions in my brain. What did Kevin get out of sending the picture? How did he get caught? Is the person I’m talking to even called Kevin?
“My head was abuzz with this chatter and then Kevin, or whoever he was, said ‘What do you think?’.
“So I just said, ‘yes’.
“He gave me a strange look and then saw someone he knew, or pretended to, and said he had to go. I still I have no idea what happened. Had I just said ‘yes, I like mixed martial arts’, ‘yes, I think incest should be legalised’ or ‘yes, I think Nigel Farage seems like fun’.
“The upside is I don’t think I’ll be getting sent a picture of a ballbag anytime soon”.
