- Kugelmass: You're Persky the Great?
- Persky: The Great Persky. You want a tea?
- Kugelmass: No, I want romance. I want music. I want love and beauty.
- Persky: But not tea, eh? Amazing.
I need to have an affair. I may not look the part, but I’m a man who needs romance. I need softness, I need flirtation. I’m not getting any younger, so before it’s too late I want to make love in Venice, trade quips at ‘21’, and exchange coy glances over red wine and candlelight.
—Woody Allens “Mr. Kugelmass” of his short story, “The Kugelmass Episode.”
Help me. I had a dream last night. I was skipping through a meadow holding a picnic basket and the basket was marked ‘Options.’ And then I saw there was a hole in the basket.
The Kugelmass Episode
I am afraid of the dark. I just recently developed this fear and I don’t know why or what happened to make me fear the dark but it’s annoying and I want to go to sleep.
