David Sedaris is just great. He writes in his diary every day and follows Japanese fashion and he brings gifts to the teenagers who come to his readings!
Yeah, I do, and I always have gifts for them because I’m always so honored that they come. If I run out of gifts, I give them money. A couple of years ago, I gave condoms to teenagers because I wanted something that was light and easy to pack. Perfect, right? And then I got a letter from a woman in Chicago who said, “I came with my daughter to see your show and she’s 15 and you gave her a condom and told her you didn’t want to be responsible for her losing her virginity so she could only use it for anal sex.” Yeah, that’s exactly what I said! I don’t know how she could’ve been offended by it. I mean, I was nice to her daughter.
Why anyone would be offended by such a kindness I do not know. He’s taking your daughter under his WING, lady. Some people just don’t understand genius.
