I snorted coke out my nose when I read this

That’s not almond milk dear…

I snorted coke out of my nose when I read this:

Clarke Gayford says he’s always been attracted to ambitious women but reckons he’s “hit the jackpot” with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

He also says the rush of thoughts through his mind when told by Ardern she was pregnant was the question: ‘How on earth is she going to cope given everything else that is on her plate at the moment?’

But Gayford, 40, told Britain’s Sunday Times watching his partner handle coalition negotiations left him in no doubt they could achieve anything together.

“The one thing that stood out for me through all of the white-hot heat of the negotiations – and there was a huge amount of pressure going around back and forth – she was the calmest I have ever seen,” he told the Sunday Times.

“She just rolled through the middle of it so unbelievably well. She just stepped up into that environment. It was stressful, obviously, but I never saw it become too much at any point.

“And I drew from that for strength and thought, ‘if we can get through that, we can get through anything’.

“Anyone who knows me knows I’ve always been attracted to ambitious women and I think I’ve probably hit the jackpot.

So, he didn’t say he’d hit the jackpot, he actually said he thinks he probably has. Not quite as emphatic as claimed by the headline in the NZ Herald.

Still anyone who can eat an apple through a tennis racket must have some endearing qualities.

I still snorted coke out my nostrils, which certainly has to be better than snorting Ritalin up them.
