***** NOT A TEACHER *****
I was wondering if this definition from The New Oxford American Dictionary (2001) might be of help:
"We sat through some very boring speeches."
Definition: "from beginning to end of (an experience or activity, typically a tedious or stressful one)."
The Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (200l) gives this sentence:
"We worked through the night."
Definition: During the whole period of; throughout.
So I guess that from the first time that Teddy started to become famous, he continued his friendship with
John. He did not let his fame "go to his head." As Teddy became famous, he started making a lot of new "friends,"
but he never forgot John, who was Teddy's best friend before Teddy became famous. They say that some people who
start to become famous suddenly forget their friends because they start to think: "Oh, I am so famous now. Everyone
loves me. Everyone wants to come to my parties and be photographed with me. I don't have time to spend with the
little people who were my friends when I was a nobody."
