So even knowing viruses slink in through the eyes, mouth, and nose, I sleep under at least a sheet, and never nude. "If my feet get cold, I start to sneeze," I've told women to justify this lapse in sexual abandon. "Hypnosis works on a weak will," Mom told me, too; so I was thrilled when The Great Zoltan couldn't budge me in the Wiki Wiki Room the night Julie Elvised "All Shook Up," quacked like a duck, and did a strip Zoltan's assistant had to stop. Of course, Julie'd strip at the drop of "I love you." She slept naked, and loathed my blue PJs. When I pled suggestibility, she said, "Zoltan couldn't touch you either," and stayed hurt. Psychologists know suggestion works best if you trust the suggester. So I throw salt over my shoulder like Mom, and squirrel cash in case Wall Street crashes again. So when I call a friend, and she can't talk ­ "I'm off to Dallas. Mom's real sick again" ­ I know the fear she's in ­ unmarried, childless, but with one person she
