Not so, m'lud - I was using it in this sense (from Wiktionary) :

Perspective

(figuratively) The choice of a single angle or point of view from which to sense, categorize, measure or codify experience.
The ability to consider things in such relative perspective.

I rest my case (it was too heavy to carry for long periods).

Guilty nevertheless as ambiguity is not acceptable as grounds for use of obtuse reasons for breaching the terms of this thread - Life without parole on bread & water!

Allegedly, at an undisclosed address somewhere in Westminster, an illegal gathering was held, in direct contravention of regulations. I have used the FOI Act, and plain honest bribery, to ascertain a list of the guests, which I append :

Mr & Mrs Dral - and their daughter, Cathy
Mr & Mrs Wall-carpeting - and their son, Walter...
I tried to think where I've heard these before, but I'm sorry I haven't a clue.

My favourite:Ė Monsieur et Madame Isthesoundofaracingcar and their son Pierre...

Go back further, into the dim and distant past of BBC Radio Comedy - many surfaced on the fore-runner, I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again.

They could even have been used on the fore-runner to ISIRTA too, otherwise known as TWTWTW or TW3 or even 'That Was The Week That Was'!

In the 1960s I fell off my bike and hurt my knee. I’m telling you this now because we didn’t have social media then.

They say we can have gatherings with up to ten people without issues.
I don’t even know ten people without issues.

I never make the same mistake twice.
I do it five or six times, you know, just to make sure.
