a book meme...

The Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4.Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to the person who tagged you once you've posted your three sentences

She frowned. "Yeah. Why?"
He was now the color of a Thanksgiving cranberry mold. "You just seem real winded, you know."

I think that might be four sentences, technically. From Connie Brockway's novel, Skinny Dipping.

To tag...I haven't tagged anyone in AGES. So you're it. If you take the bait, leave me a comment.


I spent a delightfully introverted evening at a party. (How is this possible?) Well, I didn't know a soul, (well, not very many souls) so I sat by the fire and stared at it and spoke only when spoken to. It was lovely. Once I could listen in on a conversation that used the word mortgage and investment and taxes, I figured it was time to come home.

What?? You don't want to read about child discipline? I'm hurt.

Ok, not really :)

And I wanted to add an "amen" to your newest post about avoiding and such at the OD. But right now I'm running out of time to comment on two posts, so here it is! Sorry I missed you last night - we have fun things like sinus infections going on around here.
