I've been tagged! I did this meme a while back, but the book I was reading then was Systematic Theology. Here are the rules, then I'll see what's at hand.
Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same.
So the closest book at hand is Taming a Liger: Unexpected Spiritual Lessons from Napoleon Dynamite. The Hunny picked this up at the library this weekend and Little Guy decided to read it. Bizarre. I haven't even looked inside or read the back cover yet. Let's see what's on page 56, shall we?
Page 56 is blank! Oh alright. Page 57 then.
Pedro is not a tot lover. Napoleon, as we know, is. He (Napoleon) eyes them across the table. Already finished with his own, he sees them on Pedro's tray, untouched and looking oh-so-tasty."
There ya have it. Oatmeal Head has a shirt which says, "You gonna eat your tots?" This book doesn't strike me as being as tasty as tots. But appropriate, more than likely, for an eleven year old boy.
I'm in a tagging mood today! Five of ya are: Karen, at Surrounded by Sea Monkeys (I want to see what books are lying around her house); Kidzmama, at Not a Spare Minute (does she have time for books?); Mayberry Magpie (she'll be writing her own book someday soon); Trisha, of In My Dreams I Can Talk (because reading is a pleasure and a must, right?); and Debbie of Wisteria and Roses (I just know something fascinating will turn up there!). Off to your books, ladies!
Until I write again ...
