Why Isn't Joan Nathan Preparing for Shabbat?

It's 4:30 on a Friday afternoon at the Cleveland Park Public Library in DC, and Joan Nathan, the world renowned authority on Jewish cuisine is talking to Barbara Gaunt, one of the librarians, about research on her latest book. Wow, a celebrity in my midst! I can't believe it. At this very moment I'm looking at the face of a woman I've seen on Martha Stewart. My heart is racing. I'm in the presence of a real-life personage. I wonder if she's ever read my story, The Dinner Party?

Wow, Joan Nathan! I can't believe it. If I weren't so shy I would ask for her autograph. Oops, she just left. It's 4:45. Hey, why isn't she at home cooking her Shabbat dinner? Do I smell something fishy here?

Check out my short story: "The Dinner Party."

Yesterday afternoon, at the library, looking at Joan Nathan, I kept hearing Woody Allen saying, "I can't fucking believe this. Joan Nathan?"
