    I was told by an ophthalmic surgeon that the Royal Society of Ophthalmic Surgeons subsidises the distribution of drinks umbrellas and that every £1 spent generates £20 in eye hospital income. He was shockingly drunk when he said it, mind.

    Be wary of the lady who shows you a drawer full of those cute ornaments.
