Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)


I like to have a martini, two at the very most. After three I’m under the table, after four I’m under my host.

“It serves me right for putting all my eggs in one bastard.”

    She sounds like Ognen Nash-“Candy is Dandy, but liquor is quicker!>” Before he died he added to the famous poem- “Pot is not.” But Ogden wherever you are- did you mean it wasn’t dandy, or it wasn’t quicker?

    Good one, Joe! That quote always bothered me – before you translated it correctly.
