I just saw David Sedaris tonight. I’m walking on air! Probably the funniest 90 minutes on my life. The stories he read for us were different, although he did conclude with the poems about dogs. He told a story about Halloween a day late, drowning a mouse in a bucket, peeing into a bag, and I think another than has slipped my mind. He said the mouse one was unfinished, but it was probably my favorite.
My friend and I waited in line after the show for an hour for him to sign our copies of “Me Talk Pretty One Day.” About two people in front of us, the coordinators or whoever whispered something to him. We were told that the union (I’m at school) had to close in 15 minutes, so he couldn’t personalize the books anymore. He still signed our books and chatted with us (although not as long as the previous people, of course). He was incredibly apolegetic and sincere. I can’t get over how nice he is! He said he loves book signings and wouldn’t have minded doing a three-hour signing.
Sigh. I already can’t wait to see him again.
