A conversation at work on Friday:
Me: I’ve got this claim by a bloke called Lloyd…(surname redacted for obvious reasons)
Kay: I know that name.
Me: I doubt it…
Kay: Yes, I do. Wasn’t he a singer? In the 80s…?
Me: (after a pause) Do you mean Lloyd Cole?
Me: No. Not him. Because his surname’s Cole. Unlike the person I’m talking about.
Kay: You’re going to write about this, aren’t you?
Yes. Yes I am.
