David Sedaris will be talking pretty at the Paramount tonight, and many of his fans did the same when they entered our contest to win two tickets to the David Sedaris appearance. The rules? To enter, you simply had to tell us what you would do "when engulfed in flames..."

Here are just some of the hot answers:

From Mikebdenver:

When engulfed in flames I would get the hell out of the gay bar and go to the Piggly Wiggly for some nutter butter cookies and an issue of the National Inquirer and head over to the trailerpark to visit my old friend from my caferia job days...

From DT Pennington:

Hug a package of hot dogs. #dinner

And from S:

I would mostly just hope that it was raining men that day.

Our winners were Trina Ross and Ian M. Belcurry, and even if you can't make tonight's show, you can enjoy their entries along with all the others here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
