Ah, yes. Blogging is fast-becoming a playground atmosphere. And if you ever played "tag" as a kid, then you know that once you're "it" you have to take action. Mr. Furious snared me into his latest meme scheme that goes as follows:
1. Grab the nearest book (that is at least 123 pages long).
2. Open to p. 123.
3. Go down to the 5th sentence.
4. Type in the following 3 sentences.
5. Tag five people.
I'm gonna do the first four steps now and save the fifth for a moment of my choosing (I play tag the way a Russian spies on America)!
The book is Richard Russo's "Bridge of Sighs"-- a gift from Rickey Henderson. And here's the text:
"When my mother and I passed Newberry's, she'd wrinkle her nose and say, "Lord, that smell." Little did she know how I yearned for the day I'd be old enough to go inside on my own and spend hours investigating its dark, delicious mysteries. Even then I seemed to know that all this would begin to happen in junior high."
