so last night, david sedaris was funny and charming and all the things that david sedaris is. it is hard to imagine the shy, controlling drug addict in his stories is the same confident performer who holds the audience in his hands.

i did NOT feel confident when i went to get my book signed, however. last time was so great! banter, laughter, witty, pithy comments from both sides! it was awesome, and i marinated in that experience for a good long while.

this time, SR and i went up like two 13 year olds about to meet jesse mccartney. lots of giggling. no jokes, no back and forth, a quick signature and we were on our way. sigh. can't win them all i guess. although, he DID say he remembered me ("who could forget those eyes?" were his exact words), BUT he opened with "have we met before?" the first time we met, so it may just be something he says to everyone and sometimes it's yes and sometimes it's no.... oh well.

and now i will leave you with a joke from one is his readings:
Q. what did the leper say to the prostitute?
A. keep the tip.

Hehe, as I said on SR's blog, I love that I can read both of your sides :P

But I agree with him - who could forget those eyes! He's got to have meant that.

Love the joke btw, hehe. :)
