An Evening With David Sedaris



The girl with the collection of penis bones called me to say that she had a spare ticket for David Sedaris - did I want to go

DID I ...?!?!?!?

Mr Sedaris' early books make frequent mention of his OCD and now that he has moved to East Sussex  he talks about how he spends as much time as possible picking up litter in his neighbourhood. This includes a wooded area where people go for fried chicken and sex

They leave behind masses of those styrofoam coffins with chicken carcasses in - and strewn all around are several used condoms

His friends are amazed that he picks up the condoms

Of course I do, I put leaves between my fingers first - I don't pick them up with my mouth


I came directly home but left my friend standing in the queue waiting to meet the famous author - she wanted to give him one of her penis bones

  4. I gave him a 1980s story/picture book of London. I said he might want to give it to a kid in his life. He said, "Yes! And that kid is named "David." I wish I had thought of a penis bone, but I don't have any handy and I'm just not that cook.

    1. You really need to get into a broader range of cookery Kim. Mr S will adore your taste in books - I do! x
