A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong,
And I am Marie of Romania.
That Dorothy Parker, eh?
What a card!
I think my favourite DP story relates (from memory) to her honeymoon. An old friend asked at the front desk of the hotel where DP was staying, whether she could come up and visit.
“Tell her to come back tomorrow,” DP replied “I’ll be too fucking busy or visa versa.”
