Kiss the cook

Random quote of the day:

“I don’t see why people make such a to-do about choosing a new cook. There is only one thing that is absolutely essential. I always ask at once, “Do you drink?” and if she says “No!” I bow politely and say that I am very sorry but I fear that she will not suit. All good cooks drink.”
