    I just don t care for David Sedaris There, I ve said it I ve made peace with the fact I have stared deep into the cockles of my heart, and forced myself to come to the only obvious but unpopular conclusion.I just don t care for David Sedaris.It was somewhat of an existential struggle for me to reach this conclusion because I m exactly the kind of person who should like David Sedaris.I am a sarcastic Generation Xer with an overdeveloped sen

    Witty, wry, bitter, delightful.My mom gave me the book I was living in France at the time, so she thought David Sedaris and I would have a ton in common She went to a Sedaris booksigning to get a personalized message to her gay son in France After he was done reading, she jumped up to get him to write a note to me, David My son is gay He s living in France right now, please sign this copy for him He had already started an orderly signing process, going

    I ve been thinking a lot about this, and I have come to the conclusion that David Sedaris is one of the worst human beings in history, i.e., since human beings were first invented by an incompetent, Jerry Lewis like god or by the inscrutable permutations of natural phenomena This isn t a moral judgment It s like when someone tells you that you have spinach stuck in your teeth It s both the mere reportage of a fact and a public service Because, after all, yo
