"As for Donald O'Neary, he had cattle and sheep all his days to his heart's content."
The Book Meme works like this:
- Grab the nearest book.
- Open it to page 56.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
- Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
The nearest book, in the middle of the floor, was Celtic Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs. It was a near miss, because page 56 of this particular book has only 4½ sentences! The fifth sentence was the very end of the story!
What's really cool is that I landed on Hudden and Dudden and Donald O'Neary, a story which I used to tell eight or nine years ago. Perhaps it's time to bring it out again...
