The writer did not care too much about himself, but he did not worry about his family. Krylov was not particularly friendly with anyone, did not like anyone, did not feel hatred, anger or pity for anyone. So, for example, the night when his mother died, his son went to the theater, at his funeral, he did not mourn, but smiled. On the day of the death of his maid, who gave birth to his illegitimate daughter, the writer went to play cards in an English club. Even when his only child was at death, he left with him an old woman, and he went to the ball-masquerade.

If to speak with direct text, then he was a real glutton. And he chose friends on the basis of who better feed. But often, however much he was treated, he returned home hungry and "finished". If in the kitchen at that moment there was nothing tasty, Krylov dispensed a pot of sour cabbage and a jug of kvass. And one day, when this did not happen, he found under the table a cooker, forgotten by the cook, with six molded pies and ate them all without any effect on their health!

The writer tried to do a minimum of movements. This was another joy of Krylov. Having worked for almost 30 years in the Public Library, he managed every day for two hours to sleep in the workplace. At first people were angry, and then they got used to having a rest after dinner, and stopped to contact him at that time. The authorities did not pay attention to the liberty of Krylov, since he was a friend of the royal family and a favorite of the society. Friends, from whom he often stayed, had for him a separate chair on which he slept after a dense dinner.
