The Slice

Moronic Moments in My Career Dept.

Long ago and far away, I found myself in a hotel room talking to Dinah Shore about her new cookbook.

My editor wanted me to get her to talk about her recent break-up with Burt Reynolds. She wanted to talk about cooking.

For some reason, I mentioned that I had just seen her in an old movie on TV. I don't recall exactly how I put it. But I all but said, "You know, you were quite a babe back then."

She was gracious. I think she had encountered idiots before.

The other day, I caught sight of my autographed copy of that cookbook. I took it off the shelf.

Funny thing. I actually think she looked better when I met her in 1983 than she did back in the '40s.

But you can decide for yourself.
