I’ve written in the past about how much I love David Sedaris’s essays on This American Life; and I remember a wonderful one-man show of The Santaland Diaries put on by one of the local theater companies a few years ago.

But tonight … tonight I get to see the man himself, giving a reading (presumably) from his most recent book, When You Are Engulfed in Flames. I’ve been looking forward to this show since KUER did their spring pledge drive. I couldn’t afford to pledge then, because I was still in the midst of a $300 pledge from the previous fall drive; so when the tickets went on sale to the public, I pounced.

Two pair, front row balcony, have been stuck to my refrigerator for the past 5 months and some-odd days … awaiting their opportunity to put butts in seats for an evening full of laughs.

I can’t wait for the workday to be over.
