We went out last week and Jem had the ugliest looking drink I've ever seen. She asked for a glass of champagne and they put in the bottom of the glass a red lotus flower blossom. The idea being that it would unfurl gracefully in the champagne and look lovely and posh. But it didn't unfurl and instead sat there looking like a blood clot. There were a few straggly bits that looked like membrane attached to it. So she fished it out and we passed it around and all had a look and a feel and then it was dropped in the candle and I, without thinking picked it up and plopped it back in her glass. It was ugly.
