In the evening, Andrew decides to join the team. Gabe, more mechanically than domestically inclined, has set fire to the stove only once, and though I would never have thought to add cooking oil to frying bacon, still his culinary efforts have their charm. Chuck thinks I am attempting to weasel out of something by teaching the boys to cook, shirk my duties and all that. Yet the forms of chairs, sofas and settees that have never been bettered for grace and beauty, and still sit at the apogee of style in the world's largest democracy, were developed under the French monarchs — imports of style that go back to before the founding of the republic.
