Lost in Translation

Yesterday Kev went to Dave & Buster's with a friend (if you don't know, D&B's is like a grown-up Chuck E. Cheese's).
Later, he texted to let us know that he had won 1,318 tickets, with which he had 'bought' (from the gift redemption counter) "a little yellow jacket, a small soccer ball, and a tiny shot glass that says Dave & Buster's on it".

While I was impressed with his thesaurus-like usage of descriptive words, we wondered about the little yellow jacket.  He's more of a black color wearing type, and if not black, then the darkest shades of other colors.
Yellow? Nahh.

(Not Kevin)

It wasn't until he got home that we realized he hadn't been talking about a lemon-colored weather-buffering piece of apparel, but instead a stuffed toy of Georgia Tech's mascot - the Yellow Jacket!
Go Jackets!
