Here is how to play:
1. Open the book closest to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment.
2. Turn to page 56....
3. Write out the fifth sentence, as well as the two to five sentences following.
(I am at work, and the ONLY book I have here is "The Great Divorce" by C.S. Lewis.)
'Not at the moment,' said the Hard-Bitten Ghost. 'But I never saw one of those bright mornings that didn't turn to rain later on. And, by gum, when it does rain here! Ah, you hadn't thought of that? It hadn't occurred to you that with the sort of water they have here every raindrop will make a hole in you, like a machine-gun bullet. That's their little joke, you see.
So, there you have it. Sort of fun, eh? I love things taken out of context sometimes. (whew! It's a good thing the 'closest' book wasn't some smut-romance book!)
Ok - You're Turn! Tag, you're it! Let me know if you plan to play, and I'll be over to check your blog! Or, you can just post the lines from p. 56 of your closest book here in the comment forum - heck it might even be more fun that way! Can't wait!
