EXCERPT from ‘THE UNTHINKABLE SHOES’

 [ In the morning I’m feverish. A lovely egg breakfast means nothing. My shoes wait for me, daring me to accept their torture. I will put them on later because I deserve the knives in my heels. Every step will remind me of what I did. Every step will bring me closer to heaven for the suffering I’m supposed to have to deserve a place there.]

    Would you look at that menu! Compare it with a Big Mac today. Are we kidding?
    Of course in steerage they wouldn’t even have heard of a Big Mac.

    • The word ‘Big’ pales next to ‘Titanic Mac’… in steerage the fare was mostly stews and sandwiches. Maybe they had the ‘cockie leekie’ soup renamed as what it is – plain old chicken soup with leeks.

    Stews and sandwiches? That’s what I feed myself almost every day! Next time I’ll travel steerage and save on fare.
    Of course the great ocean liners are long gone, replaced by a three-hour transatlantic flight via airline, travelling close to the speed of bloody sound.
    If you have never sailed on an ocean liner, you’re missing a great experience. What the seas were high, I remember being invited up to the bridge. Let me give you an image: before we boarded, when standing on the wharf the bridge was eight stories above my head. So there we are visiting the bridge, and the ship is going into a trough, and the crest of the next wave is high above my head. Can you see it?
    Of course, reaching the trough, the ship then rose on the next wave. I shiver today, thinking of it.

    Sorry. “What the seas were high” ??? That clause doesn’t make sense. Wish I could edit it.
    Say this quickly ten times (she edited it she edited it… etc)
    Of course I meant “when the seas were high” – we were sailing in a force nine gale – we could look up and see the next crest coming down on us.
