Should Have Just Gone With ‘Maybe’

| Friendly | April 8, 2014

(I am staying with friends, who are a couple, over New Year. All of us are big geeks. My female friend has had to work New Years Eve and will be working New Years Day. She’s just come in from work and isn’t quite feeling it for the New Years party we’re meant to be going to.)

Friend: “Do you think [Boyfriend] will mind if I don’t come out tonight? I’m exhausted.”

Me: “Well, it is New Year. It’s generally nice to have someone to kiss at midnight. But he’s really laid back so he probably wouldn’t mind much. But it might make him sad to miss out on it. He’d probably understand though.”

(There’s a pause whilst I consider the conflicting advice I’ve given her.)

Me: *apologetically* “Do not go to the elves for advice, for they will say both no and yes.”
