I have been a huge David Sedaris fan for a long time, so we went to see him last night. Before the show started, we’re just sitting there engaging in my favoriate public pasttime: eavesdropping. We heard the kids (college-aged) behind us say “I cannot WAIT for the Demolition Derby on Sunday!” I elbowed My Better Half and said “What do you think the overlap is among the audiences for David Sedaris and the Demolition Derby?!”
After the Sedaris show, we caught up with some friends for a drink and I relayed to them the anecdote with a tone of “Can you believe that?!”, and they replied “Uh…WE are going to the Demolition Derby on Sunday…” So I guess the Venn diagram would have more overlap than I would have expected.
