Mr. Echo tagged me for a great meme!
Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to Mickey once you have posted it. (Mr. Echo did not know who Mickey is - sorry Mickey!)
Here is the nearest book to the computer. It's a very old copy of J.D. Salinger's Catcher in The Rye. It is Mommy's favorite book ever. She even has a first edition of it! here is what is says on page 123 - the 3 sentences after the 5th one;
"In a way, it was sort of depressing, too, because you kept wondering what the hell would happen to all of them. When they got out of school and college, I mean. You figured most of them would probably marry dopey guys. Guys that always talk about how many miles they get to a gallon in their goddam cars. Guys that get sore and childish as hell if you beat them at golf, or even some stupid game like ping-pong."
Mommy says that Holden Caufield was one of the sweetest characters she ever got the pleasure to know in a story.
Here I am counting the minutes 'till I can go out on my deck.
