At 18 I was chased around the upstairs of a very swanky row house on Capitol Hill, at a very swanky A-Gay party, by a very drunk and staggering Lenny with his fly open. I was too young to know that one habitually offers oneself to genius. (Alas, this wisdom finally came when youth went.)So my reaction at the time--I ran using little tiny Bette Midler steps while squeaking and admonishing, "Mr. Bernstein!!"Ah, the follies of youth.
felix, at least you were chased.
Goodness! The comments here alone could fuel a Hollywood Babylon Part 30!
Did you see the genius' penis?
TJB-No, I was to busy running for the life of my chastity. Oh, OK, I was running for another drink!
