Yes there are tells an author leaves in that hint to additional data. But sometimes a curtain is just a fucking curtain

I've got nothing against men. Quite the contrary. But they can't cook. Oh, they can cuisne like no one's business. Put them in some huge kitchen with dozens of chefs and skivvies to shout at and they can manage to fry an egg and arrange it delicately on the plate with sprigs of this and that on a bed of somethin' vaguely sinister, but ask them to serve up meals every day to a huge bunch of hungry kids on a budget of sixpence and they'll have a bit of a headache. I daresay there are men who can manage it, but usually when I hear someone say that a husband cooks, I generally reckon it means he's got a recipe for something expensive and he does it twice a year. And then leaves the pans in the sink 'to soak'.

--Terry Pratchett, Nanny Ogg's Cookbook

Pretty damned accurate in my experience :D Day to day scrimpsavefoodmaking things seems to be a female domain.

Everyone in this world is fucked in the head. You just have to figure out how someone is fucked in the head. If you can't deal with it, don't have them in your life. If you can deal with it, never ever hold it against them.

Critics who treat "adult" as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adults themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence....When I was ten, I read fairytales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man, I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

-- C. S. Lewis
