David Sedaris' When You Are Engulfed In Flames

From the book:
A Japanese woman we'd met in Paris came to the apartment yesterday and spent several hours explaining our appliances. The microwave, the water kettle, the electric bathtub: everything blinks and bleeps and calls out in the middle of the night. I'd wondered what the rice maker was carrying on about, and Reiko told us that it was on a timer and simply wanted us to know that it was present and ready for duty. That was the kettle's story as well, while the tub was just being an asshole and waking us up for no reason.
I read it, I liked it, I'd like to pass it on. I'll be happy to mail it to the first person to use the link in the sidebar to the right to donate $10 to Barack Obama.
