Too long...

I was tagged by Martha for this meme:

* Grab the book closest to you. Now.
* Go to page 56.
* Find the 5th sentence.
* Write that sentence as your title.
* Copy these instructions.
* Don't go looking for your favorite book, or the coolest one you have - just grab the closest one

Well, all the books that are closest to me are much shorter than 56 pages (We're all lucky that The Complete Madeline collection was moved back in the bedroom), so I altered it to the closest adult book, which is When You Are Engulfed In Flames by David Sedaris.

The sentence is "The woman stayed with us for a week, and while I hated for her to leave, I sort of loved watching her go."


  1. What a Great sentence, thank you so much for playing along. I love how you found a book long enough.

  2. Sounds like our Dear Aunt Flo! She stays about a week, but I'm always thankful to see her go. :)
