*Chocolate Soldier is an expression referring to a good-looking but useless warrior, popularised by George Bernard Shaw’s 1894 play Arms and the Man.
**A Pineapple is truly the most amazing, spectacular thing of the human race. It is a thing of beauty, something that should be worshipped and loved by all that know it.
***Loved this dialogue from Roman Holiday:
Princess Ann: I hate this nightgown. I hate all my nightgowns, and I hate all my underwear too.
Countess: My dear, you have lovely things.
Princess Ann: But I’m not two hundred years old. Why can’t I sleep in pajamas?
Princess Ann: Just the top part. Did you know that there are people who sleep with absolutely nothing on at all?
Countess: I rejoice to say I do not.
****Everyone wants a better life, and swings can do just that.
