sex in a canoe?

I have to give my Lady Lina ultimate props for this post as it was her good self that put me onto David Sedaris. Back in Berlin during one of our many sessions she lent me his book Holidays on Ice which had me laughing out loud on public transport, simply genius observations perfect for the festive season! As soon as i had finished i wanted more and headed to the nearest book shop to get my fix,  ’When your engulfed in flames‘ was even better than the first and again i LOL’d my ass off all over South America usually at 36,000 ft. Being the obsessive that i am i timed the ending of the book with my return to the UK and of course headed straight to WHSmiths in the airport when i landed to buy another one…seriously his writing is like heroine but without all the bad bits. The latest one keeping me company is ‘Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim‘ again just brilliant, the story Rooster at Hitchen Post is forever etched in my mind thanks to this Monty Python-esque exchange…

He took a sip of my father’s weak coffee and spit it back into the mug. “This shit’s like making love in a canoe.”

“Excuse me?”

“It’s fucking near water”

If you laughed, you know what to do, go get some Sedaris in your life
