Rebekah tagged me for this book meme a while back, but I'm just now getting to it.
* 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 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.
The book - This one's tricky. At my home desk, I've got a hutch overhead that's filled with books. So I grabbed one of them that's not shelved, just perched on the edge of the shelf. That's the best I could do. The book is Selected Plays of Edward Albee.
The sentences - Grandma: People don't say good-bye to old people because they think they'll frighten them. Lordy! If they only knew how awful "hello" and "My, you're looking chipper" sounded, they wouldn't say those things either. The truth is, there isn't much you can say to old people that doesn't sound just terrible.
My tags - I shamefully admit that I'm not going to tag anyone on this one. I know this meme has been going around, and I can't remember who has already completed it yet. Soooo, if you're reading this blog, and you haven't been tagged for this yet, AND you want to share, consider yourself tagged!
