Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I have read your books for many years. My favorite is the “Snarkout Boys and the Avacado of Death.” Recently, while I was observing this website, I noticed a picture of you sitting with Kurt Vonnegut. As he is another favorite author of mind, I was wondering if y’all were friends, and what situation that picture was taken in. Thankyou

Daniel replies:

This was the situation: I used to smoke, and was bumming cigarettes off Mr. Vonnegut. He was very gracious, and may have been under the impression that he was hallucinating me. I no longer smoke cigarettes, but enjoy a fine cigar at intervals of weeks or months.
