The writer’s friend and travelling companion, Edward, is a motor man.  All things car and bus related thrill him and here he is described in happy-heaven.  What better symbol of boyish joy than ten ice creams? 

When, on the homeward journey from the Very Nice Garden, we sliced alongside a racing bus, making a noise like a mammoth circular saw, his face lit up like a small boy faced with ten ice-cream cones, all for himself.
