Best about the grammar were the Christmas discos. Free-for-all orgies when the mistletoe came out. My first disco kiss - first real kiss with a girl - made me see stars. Literally. I was dancing with this girl Inga when a posse of Kirkwall folk came up and held the mistletoe over us. We snogged, but when we parted the hall was spinning round me. I didn't know where I was. The lights on the Christmas tree all went on at once ... and then multiplied ... more and more lights, all of them gold, getting brighter and brighter, until the tree looked like it was made of meteors.
