Useful English vocabulary – “even”

One of the ways we use even is to say that something is rare or unusual; surprising.
For example:
“Jason loves his Play station portable. He plays it all the time, even when he’s in the bathroom!” – 
It isn’t usual to play video games when you are in the toilet.
“Not in the bathroom please!”
“Everyone had fun at the party last night. EvenBob and he usually hates parties.”
It is also common to say not even to mean that whatever did not happen was rare or unusual.
“Lilly had a very small wedding, she did not(didn’t)  even invite her sister.”

“No one liked the cake that I made. Not even Jeff and he eats anything!”
“Jeff is like an eating machine. He just pours food in his mouth!”
