t dream of defiling my lobster s work in that manner I can t confirm or deny if this is the way to go I can however confirm that the early years are a rough read as you follow Sedaris from his 20s in Raleigh where he than dabbled in methamphetamines and underemployment as a starving artist while consuming daily feasts at the local IHOP You LITERALLY read the phone book as well as random recipes and lists of what he got for Christmas and various other nonsense like what happened that day on As the World Turns or the off color joke a co worker told him that dayIf you can get through the first 20% or so it becomes smoother sailing David puts down the meth pipe and details his initial successes as a playwright in New York City all the way to becoming a best selling author and residing in Paris He lets you in on his family history including his mother s death and his sister s battle with mental illness and includes some truly poignant entries Last night under the stars in a pasture in our sleeping bags I poured my guts out and said things I was afraid to admit even to myself And you know it felt good and not as hopeless as I thought All that had been inside for so long While I

town and made my life complete when her various antics began being included Amy and I went to Hoffritz to find Dad a Father s Day gift Our original idea was to buy him a knife but in the end we spent 72 on a vibrator It s a Panasonic with a long stem and a thickish disk on top designed so you can reach behind yourself and work out the kinks in your back and shoulders We also figured he ll use it on his dog Our father s going to love this Amy said to the saleswoman as we laid the vibrator on the counter The woman smiled The next time we see him though I bet his front teeth are all chipped The smile faded Amy is the kind of asshole I dream of becoming one day Hysterical with absolutely no filter David and I both tend to be of the George Constanza variety when not in writing There was little

washed just one of them I looked for the other and couldn t find it anywhere The other Lisa said Shoulder pad Bob said Isn t that what we ve been talking about He handed here the fluffy clean Kotex
