“Me talk pretty one day” by David Sedaris has me taking back every bad thing I ever said about short stories. I don’t know if these are actually considered short stories, I just know that they are funny & very very good. There were no scary kids, it wasn’t a downer at all. This was my first Sedaris & I feel like I’ve been missing out all this time. He’s even funnier than me, & I think I’m pretty funny. In fact, he’s one of the funniest writers I have ever read. Where has he been all my life? You can not have a bad day after reading this book, I don’t care what is going on. This book is instant happy. I must now track down all of his other books & try to find his radio program. My only caution is to read this in a quiet place because you will laugh so hard everyone else at the library/bookstore will glare at you.
