Yesterday at the mall in Scottsdale, a young black woman put a substance under my eyes, meant to reverse the aging process. She wanted me to look in the mirror. I said, “I’d rather look at you.” She told me she was Israeli and was Jewish. She said, “Are you Jewish?” I said, “Everyone from New York is Jewish,” quoting the old Lenny Bruce routine. She did not know that human beings were animals. I said, “Human beings can either be animals or machines, which one are you?” She thought for a moment. She had very dark eyebrows and curly lashes. She said, “Sometimes I do feel like an animal.” I said, “Go with that.”
