Diet Advice at Lindy’s

Dear Diary:

Mayor Bloomberg’s concern about our waistlines reminds me of a dialogue my husband, Joel, had with a waiter at the old Lindy’s Restaurant in Manhattan back in the 1960s.

Joel: “Waiter, how many calories in your dietetic cheesecake?”

Waiter: “Am I a doctor or a waiter?”

Joel: “It’s says right here on the menu, “Dietetic cheesecake.”

Waiter: “You’re on a diet? You shouldn’t eat cheesecake.”

Bloomberg’s kind of guy!
