The epic I saw there was "Quo Vadis?" But what made me laugh out loud was this - "A rather distasteful pastime now I reflect on it, was to use a piece of elastic to swat the countless thousands of flies that gathered on the schoolroom windowsills during summer." My friend Howard and I did the same at St John's School, Episkopi, Cyprus, but we splattered them on the window pane with a ruler. The mess of bodies grew and grew. How gross!
