Listen to it, don't read it. I don't think I would have gotten through it if I read it. It was ok. More typical Sedaris, which ain't so bad. No surprises here. Could have eliminated a lot, (like hearing about his boil, located at the bottom of his spinal column.)Good final entry; about his and his family's smoking history. Congratulations are in order to David for kicking the habit. Way to go David!

Re-listened to this on a recent road trip. We had quite a few good laughs, esp. "In the Waiting Room."
