Gaetan cleaning the surfaces of his small appliances

"I'm taking this morning to clean the outsides of my small appliances," Uncle Gaetan said. This was on the phone. She thought this was funny. She thought it was all part of his being The Dapper Uncle, along with his dancing master gigs on the Alaska cruises and his bathroom full of hotel shower gels, but then it dawned on her that maybe other people devoted mornings to cleaning their small appliances and that she might want to look at her own, but not now. Over the next few months the thought came back, until one day after Christmas she vowed to take a dispassionate look at her toaster, her juicer, and her coffee grinder. Maybe it was a new year's resolution. She had a feeling that once she got going, maybe she'd need to pencil in the whole month of March. Luckily something happened in the laundry nook that meant she ended up with a cloth full of La Parisienne biodegradable detergent.
