90° In the Shade
From 29° A L'ombre, by Eugene Labiche.
It is the custom of Hector Pomadour to invite his friends to his home on Sunday for lunch and skittles. On this occasion, one of them has run into another gentleman on his way and has invited him to join the group. Hector is delighted, as Adolphe Dumanoir seems to be a man worthy of cultivation, at least, that is, until he is caught hugging and kissing Hector’s wife. This, of course, calls for satisfaction, and despite the summer heat a duel is decided upon--after Hector has been assured by his friends that the guilty party would never think of defending himself against the injured husband. When Dumanoir makes it clear that he has no intention of being so foolishly gallant the picture changes, and while Hector and the others huddle to discuss strategy Madame Pomadour and Dumanoir hatch a little plot of their own. He agrees to let Hector off with a scratch, provided that Madame P. gives him another kiss. This she does, only to be discovered again--and the outrage is aggravated. But Gallic ingenuity comes to the fore, honor is satisfied, and all ends in a spirit of jovial camaraderie.
