Unique is considered a paradigmatic absolute and therefore something cannot be very unique. Used to encourage someone pronounced vah-zee va-t'en! Roughly equivalent to idiomatic English get lost or get out.
The room glittered with crystal and silver, pineapples, lobsters and champagne. And the smart talk - what a row! One side of the room was a semi-circle of colonnaded windows through which jewelled figures slid out to the candlelit terrace and the beating of a band.
I gave up toying with my truffles and let my gaze move across the breathless midnight Mediterranean lit up with yachts and beyond, way beyond, to the lights of Africa. Max was leaning over me and looking downwards.
Click-swoosh, click-swoosh, on her way to the lavatory. He managed to stand, sway, and bow. She nodded from the crow's nest of her great height and proceeded fitfully through the wrong door. And quite wrong about my origins.
Don Pedro tapped me on the shoulder from behind. Don Pedro squeaked at the waist when he danced. But such a noble head. And we went off to Watutsi on the terrace. I didn't know what a present was until my eleventh birthday.
I gripped the table to steady myself and broke out in goose-pimples. At home Mother was holding a brown-paper parcel. I took it breathing heavily. Out rolled a pair of grey socks.

He was a Roman Catholic and so virtually she dropped one child a year: Apart from us there were several who died at birth. Being a middle child I never had new clothes. Just grey hand-me-downs, patched, darned, frayed, hanging off my scrawny frame. Even my clogs - then de rigueur among poor scouse kids - even these were hand-me-downs.
I thought I should never see the end of those clogs coming down to me, hard wooden shells with a steel rim nailed on to the undersides. These rims were always falling off and had to be hammered back on, so one felt like a horse. In her youth Mother was pretty and flirtatious, with fine brown hair and eyes and good teeth.
