I'm not usually much for (conscious) memes, but here's one (and since several friends are doing it, it must be cool):
1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
2. Find page 123.
3. Find the first five sentences.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
Trying to explain was a mistake. My father just shrugged and said, 'It's just a book; don't get so excited.' And then rubbed in some salt by saying, 'You should have taken your time and made sure there wasn't a third one before you left.'
I'm not much for "tagging" other people. Play or don't.
