Me and Dr. Ruth

Associates, this weekend past, I spoke at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. It was disgusting and tacky. However, the Big Book Getaway, which I was part of, was a great event.

And the best part of it all was that I got to hang out with Dr. Ruth for a while. If you only know of her as that little sex therapist lady, there’s much, much more to her. She has an incredible personal story and she was so happy and brilliant. And tiny. See for yourself.


Someone said, “I don’t know which of you looks giddier.” I think it’s me.

I’m 36 and I feel like my ears are about 90. I get more deaf every day, so I couldn’t even hear her unless I was kneeling down. And that’s when we realized that I was still taller than she was.


Such a fun weekend. Thanks to the Twain House for bringing me, and thanks to Mohegan Sun for being such a smoky nightmare. I’m not at all sure why you kept turning us away at the restaurants when all the tables were empty. Perhaps you failed to recognize an author who has sold like three copies of a book!

    I wasn’t even sure Dr. Ruth was still alive. Maybe if you took her with you to dinner you would’ve gotten a seat.

    Love the carpet–convince your wife it must go in your living or dinning room, or, your office. I know you will smoke, hidden, in the back yard for a few weeks. It will pass, Josh.

    She was so tiny, are you sure she was not an alien insertion?

    Very fun, Josh!

    Michelle, go to the forum button on the side bar. You can sign in there, once you’re apvproed, you will see a list of topics on the main page. Just choose one that seems appropriate to what you want to ask and then write a new post. Hope that helps.

    Love Dr. Ruth! Loved her advice. It was like hearing your grandmother talking about sex and asking you questions about things you never even knew she knew about. Great stuff!
