now, the voa special english program words and their stories.

today i will tell about expressions using numbers. let us start with the number one. numbers can be tricky. on the one hand, they are simply numbers. on the other hand, they have meanings. i for one use these expressions a lot.

many people consider themselves number one, the most important person. they are always looking out for number one and taking care of number one. it is as if they are the one and only person on earth. some people however, are not so self-centered. my brother is such a person. it is true – no joke. i am not trying to pull a fast one on you.

first, you have to understand that my brother is one in a million. he is such a nice person. all his friends like him. they consider him one of the boys. recently, my brother had a bad day at the office. it was just one of those days. nothing went right. so he stopped at a local bar -- a drinking place -- after leaving work. my brother planned to have a glass of beer with his friends -- a quick one – before he went home. but a quick one turned into one or two, and soon those became one too many.
