I am not a meme addict. I can quit anytime I want. One more isn’t going to kill me. I’ll stop tomorrow. I know other people who do a lot more memes than me. They are the ones with a problem! Oh shut up, what do you know?!
Anyway, I chose this meme because I like to read. I always have, ever since the Bazooka Joe bubble gum wrapper jokes and the Mad Magazines as a kid, even school text books, even my dry technical professional shit, but especially things that give me insight into the way other people think. I like it personal. That’s why I like blogging. So, anyway…
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
1. Tag yourself if you want to, and leave your sentences in a comment here.
Here’s mine from my current read:
From “Dear American Airlines” by Jonathan Miles
“Instead of quoting Buk to the doctor, I cheerily said thank you though he obviously hadn’t meant the 150-year-old-man crack as a compliment. Sawbones scowled at me which I found unsavory, since, really, I’d only matched him jest for jest. Apparently it’s fair to make funny only about bodies you don’t inhabit.”
