My read-headed pal Molly tagged me for a meme ages ago, and so I thought I'd better get moving on it. Here are the rules:
Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next three sentences.
So here goes:
The nearest book is Green Grass, Running Water by Thomas King (an author recommended by Charles de Lint). Here are the sentences:
What was that? says one of the Pigs.
Sounded like a fart, says one of the Raccoons.
Okay, says one of the Moose, who farted?
I think Molly will particularly appreciate that passage. Tee hee. :-)
This meme has been floating around for a while, so if you haven't been tagged yet and have a book sitting nearby (and who doesn't, after all?) consider yourself tagged, and join the fun!
