A game!


Forgive me, Playfriends, but I'm sick and exhausted and trapped under a book, so the brain isn't working quite right. I almost forgot to blog at all (and only remembered after I took the nice medication that will put me to sleep and end this long day. Typing is fun when you can't feel your fingers and your head is floating a foot above the rest of your body...)

So, I have no deep thoughts -- or the ability to think them either -- so I thought we'd play a game instead.

Grab the book closest to you.
Turn to page 123. (If the book doesn't have a page 123, turn to page 12)
Go to the first full paragraph on the page.
Find the second sentence and type it here in the comments section.

The box from Amazon with my new copies of Skye O'Malley (I will stalk Bertrice Small at conference for an autograph) is closest to me. So, let's see what Skye offers up...

"They were fluffy creatures who would amply fill the bill."

Wow. With all the fun stuff Skye O'Malley has to offer, page 123 is obviously not the best bit! That's kind of anticlimactic.

So play along. I have gifties (including my March book) for a winner!

Sorry, taking a teaching class this summer, so nothing terribly exciting in my textbook at hand, but I love a game...
