- A: "He's in his thirties now. He has years and years of childhood...stretching out before him."
- Hapless server, setting out starters before the lovely K: "This is the tart."
The rest of us: "We know."
- A's vindictive boy, after I'd successfully trapped him in jest, timed a retort to coincide with the moment when I'd just taken a large gulp of my rum, lychee juice and maraschino cherry cocktail: "Now swallow. Bitch."
It's good to have friends who can take the piss out of you.
