My cousin from Newport Beach was living in Hollywood with a black hooker.  Danny Thomas was her client.

One evening, she was passing around a joint to us three – her, my cousin and me – and she smilingly told us that Danny would rendezvous with the lady, get naked, and whinny as she rode him around the living room furniture on a little miniature saddle.

My stoned cousin, sleepily worrying about the roach burning his fingers, breathlessly asked, “Western or English?”

And the following e-conversation ensued:

“Hi, Mike.  I don’t go along with having my name associated with Devils, drugs, etc.  Please remove my link.  Hopefully you will seek after your Creator…He will answer you if you search with all your heart.  Your friend, Warren.”

To which Alan, another reader, responded:  “What’s got into Warren?  Jesus H. Christ!”

“BINGO.” I dryly replied.

Hiya, Mike,

34 years later + you still amaze me just the same.

An elephant never forgets and neither do I.

Lest we refresh everyone else’s memory by reminding them Danny Thomas’ hit FAMILY TV show was called “Make Room For Daddy.”  I am not a betting man and never have been.  But if I was, I’d put my life savings + my beloved dog’s life on the fact that the name of his show was unrelated to him repeating those exact words, both privately and nakedly, to a hooker.

Happy to see you still making us smile + keep up the good work as always.  Your former student (c. 1975) continues to romance of the idea of someday shooting for his former teacher.  Hope that 2010 is finally our year and wishing you a happy new one.           Best, Pete.

Mike, I felt like I was there. You are a great writer.   Jeff

I remember that story…the visual of Danny Thomas being ridden by a lady of the night is just too funny…we all have secret lives I think in some way!  Tony
