March, 1961 Breakfast: I am a waiter for Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio at the luxurious Tides Hotel and Bath Club in Florida. The next year I am back in Michigan at art college, Marilyn is dead at thirty-six, and Joe will mourn for the rest of his life. “More coffee Marilyn? More coffee Joe?”

Marilyn Monroe: instantly recognized, most beautiful movie star.

Joe DiMaggio: Yankees baseball record 56-game hitting All-Star.

Me: somewhat distracted waiter.
