Readers of my book Imaginary Someone will know that I was living in that mighty strange metropolis New York City for a while. One night I was at the infamous Blue & Gold which had a pool table and all of a sudden, down the stairs clattered Harpo Marx on rollerskates!! (You could say it was someone perfectly dressed as him, raincoat and top hat, but the apparition was so out of the blue and wonderful I know it was really him). He slid up to the startled guy playing, grabbed the cue stick and took a shot at a ball and before anyone could say a word, he clunked back up the steps and zoomed away. This really happened! The world is more beautifully mysterious than meets the eye.
