CHAPTER ELEVEN

the conversation a kick in the direction of nightgowns. And by the time the young woman h4d said, `That will be upstairs, sir,' all his new-found courage was gone. Upstairs meant that instead of following a conversation along its natural lines with an intimate friend who knew all about one's wife, one would crash into the startling topic of nightgowns with a complete stranger. And from nightgowns - where then? Still a higher floor, and a more daring flight into the unseen?
`You are a man-of-the-world,' said Reginald. `You are a man-about-town. You are a clubman. Pull yourself together.' Pulling himself together, he went up stairs....
Five minutes later he was thinking: If I were a woman, I should live here. Nothing would ever drag me away from this floor. If I were a leader of fashion, I should insist on bare legs, so as to leave more money for the other things. Stockings ! Good Heavens, what a waste 1 When I had spent all my money, I should fake the household accounts. When my husband was bankrupt, I should become a shop-lifter. Yes, I'll have that and that and those. And those and.that. Oh and this. And what about that? Only seven guineas? The set? You mean that and that and those? It's giving it away. Have you another set just like it in pale green? Eau-de-Nil, that's it. Look here, we've got rather carried away. We were just talking about nightgowns when we got led on to these things. Going back to them for a moment, what about a pale green one and
a pale gold one? Sorry, Eau-de-Nil. And does Moddam wear pyjamas? No, but I suppose she could. Let's have one very exciting pair. The absurdest pair you, have. And would you be frightfully annoyed - I mean is it simply not done at all? - if I asked you to be so
