The Fifth sentence

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

Okay, I’ll play, since Doug was kind enough to post a giggle earlier.

  1. Grab the nearest book
  2. Open the book to page 23
  3. Find the fifth sentence
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions

I would credit the origination of this particular meme, but methinks this has been lost in the sands of time.

(The closest book was really Salt & Pepper, a wonderful cookbook I picked up from the library–to enjoy the philosophy and photos, and to copy some recipes–but it didn’t translate to this exercise at all well, so I picked the second closest book.)
