Jubal gently unwound himself from the embrace. .Be your age, son. Sit downand enjoy your breakfast. Ill sit with you..I didnt come here looking for breakfast, I came looking for you. Well find aplace and talk..All right.They went  to the livingroom of one of the suites, Mike pulling Jubal by thehand like an excited small boy welcoming his favorite grandparent. Mikepicked a big comfortable chair for Jubal and sprawled himself on a couchopposite and close to him. This room was on the side of the wing having theprivate landing flat; there were high French windows opening to it. Jubal gotup and shifted his chair slightly so that he would not be facing so directly intothe light in looking at his foster son; not to his surprise but mildly to hisannoyance the heavy chair shifted as if it had been no more massive than achilds balloon, his hand merely guided it.
Two men and a woman were in the room when they arrived. These leftshortly, leisurely, severally, and unostentatiously. After cheap beats by dre that they were alone,except that they were both served with Jubals favorite brandy-by hand, toJubals pleasure; he was quite ready to agree that the remote control thesepeople had over objects around them was a labor-saver and probably amoney-saver (certainly on laundry!-bis spaghetti-splashed shirt had been sofresh that he had put it on again today), and obviously a method much to bepreferred for household convenience to the blind balkiness of mechanicalgadgets. Nevertheless he was not used to telecontrol done without wires orwaves; it startled Jubal the way horseless carriages had disturbed decent,respectable horses about the time Jubal was born.
Duke served the brandy. Mike said, .Hi, Cannibal. Thanks. Are you thenew butler?.De nada, Monster. Somebody has to do it and youve got every brain in theplace slaving away over a hot microphone..Well,  theyll all be through in a couple of hours and you can revert to youruseless, lecherous existence. The job is done, Cannibal. Pau. Thirty. Ended..The whole damn Martian language all in one lump? Monster, I had bettercheck you for burned-out capacitors..Oh, no, no! Only the primer knowledge that I have of it-had of it, my brainsan empty sack.
