Me Talk Pretty One Day
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris PDF ePub free download – They‟re always remarkably calm, these agents. If asked “Why do I need to go anywhere with you?” they‟ll straighten their shirt cuffs or idly brush stray hairs from the sleeves of their sport coats and say, “Oh, I think we both know why.” The suspect then chooses between doing things the hard way and doing things the easy way, and the scene ends with either gunfire or the gentlemanly application of handcuffs. Occasionally it‟s a case of mistaken identity, but most often the suspect knows exactly why he‟s being taken. It seems he‟s been expecting this to happen. The anticipation has ruled his life, and now, finally, the wait is over. You‟re sometimes led to believe that this person is actually relieved, but I‟ve never bought it. Though it probably has its moments, the average day spent in hiding is bound to beat the average day spent in prison. When it comes time to decide who gets the bottom bunk, I think anyone would agree that there‟s a lot to be said for doing things the hard way.
