"'I wonder', she was fond of remarking, 'what they'd say if they knew that we two old tramps were going to be the most marvellous novelist and the greatest actress in the world'."

'I think if he'd been having a proper affair with another woman, and had only told me about it after it'd been going on for a long time, I'd have minded more. But this girl! Why, I don't suppose she's even his mistress'.

'Obviously not', I agreed. 'I say, shall we have a Prairie Oyster'?

'How marvellous you are, Chris! You always think of just the right thing. I wish I could fall in love with you. Klaus isn't worth your little finger'.

'I know he isn't'.

'The blasted cheek', exclaimed Sally gulping the Worcester sauce and licking he upper lip, 'of his saying I adored him! … The worst of it is, I did!'

That evening, I went into her room and found her with pen and paper before her:

'I've written about a million letters to him and torn them all up'.

'It's no good, Sally. Let's go to the cinema'.

'Right you are, Chris darling'. Sally wiped her eyes with the corner of a tiny handkerchief: 'It's no use bothering, is it'?

'Not a bit of use'.

'And now I jolly well will be a great actress- just to show him!'

'That's the spirit!'

We went to a little cinema in the Bulowstrasse, where they were showing a film about a girl who sacrificed her stage career for the sake of a Great Love, Home and Children. We laughed so much that we had to leave before the end.
