100 words: Arthur, 1980s

Arthur was a late-middle-aged therapist with an adorable west highland terrier and a young, chubby boyfriend. They lived in the gayest high-rise in Murray Hill—he always had stories about the famous gays and lesbians he met in the elevator that week. But his best story was this: one time he was traveling out west by car, and he stopped in a highway diner. He ordered a cup of coffee to sip while he perused the menu. When the waitress heard him talk, she said, "Hey, you're one of them New York Jews, ain't ya? I've never met a Jew before."
