Barbara Fister has put the tag on me. The meme is this: Pick up the nearest book, turn to page 123, find the fifth sentence from the top of the page, and copy down the next three sentences. Since I'm sitting in MD Anderson while Judy enjoys a CT-Scan, the book nearest me is the one I brought to read, Jeffrey Ford's The Shadow Year. Here are the sentences:
"A terrible drunk. Once he drove his motorcycle through a plate-glass window and was hospitalized for three months."
I waited for her to go on, but she didn't.
Doesn't tell you much, does it? I'll have a review of the book here in a few days, and then you can find out what it's all about.
I'm too lazy to tag anyone else.
