It was a lot like waiting in line to meet Santa Claus. Which, if you have read any of Sedaris's work, is a little ironic. Instead of elves he had big fat security guards. Intead of sitting on his lap we stayed the accepted safe distance away for personal comfort. But there was still the anticipation, and racking my brain for something witty to say or ask him. Then the traditional freezing up, and not being able to say anything sets in. I don't say anything extra-ordinary and I walk away with my book signed...sort of regretting my missed opportunity. Of course he doesn't remember me, I'll never see him again. I then spend the rest of the night thinking of great things I could have said or done...but alas it was not to be.

Yes, that's what you do at a David Sedaris signing. It started as an inside joke amongst his close friends. But the word got out when Ira Glass did a story about peeing on David Sedaris and his signing table one day in Chicago.
The funny thing is the way David plays in the stream with his hands. Sometimes rubbing his face in it much like Ralphie's little brother with the mashed potatoes in 'Christmas Story'.
