I remembered being dressed up in a pin-striped suit
, going to Brooklyn College
in the suit, going to downtown
in New York City
to see Ute Lemper
with "a friend." I worked on this plan one month in advance to make this happen.
What friend that was. The jerk stood me up, left me alone with all of the people in Joe's Pub being all hooked up in groups while I'm too damn lonely.
However, a girl by the name of Didi Rissman recognizes me from my home page, and she starts to e-mail me. It would take a month or two of e-mail exchanges before we meet up for the first "test date."
