Miss(ed) Manners

Time Is On My Side

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 2:17 pm

I received a few phone calls the other night from friends telling me that I’d been quoted in Time magazine. Of course the first question I had was, “Is there a picture? Do I look fabulous?” The answer being, “No, but you always look fabulous, Dave. How do you do it?” Sixty to seventy alcoholic drinks a week. That’s how, Mom.

What a bizarre bit of happenstance. The quote comes from a column I wrote a little over two years ago. It’s way in the back, teeny tiny and they put my name in quotation marks, as in, “Dave.” If that IS my real name.

Anyways, thanks Time! Though a little warning would have been awesome. With the whole candy sculpture thing still being front page around here, I feel like the guy that walked into his surprise party dressed in full on Furry gear.

So, what are some of my first words ever printed in a nationally circulated publication? One’s “crotch,” and the other’s “punch.”

Stay classy, “Dave.”



  1. Dear Dave,

    Aw, how nice!

    I’m going to go giggle now at the weird guy who molests strangers. (That’d be you, in case you missed it from huffing icing for hours.)

  6. I think he thinks this place jumped the shark… that is the only thing I can think of as to why he would stop after Time Magazine quoted him.
