Another random oddness

Discovered on my friend Clay's blog:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open the book to page 10.
  • 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

Well, the first book I picked up was Ductigami: The art of the tape by Joe Wilson, but page 10 was a picture. So I went to the next one, which was Tyler's Ultimate: Brillaint simple food to make anytime by Tyler Florence. Page 10 was half of a picture (i.e. pages 10 and 11 are the heading pages for the "appetizers" section). So I looked around and finally found a book in range that was likely to have text on page 10. This turned out to be The Slayers of Seth by Paul Doherty:
There had been no flowers, no fresh fruit nor strong wine that fateful night...

Three tries, and even then I get a sentence that just trails off. What does that say about me?

hmmmm.... My closest book is a collection of poetry by a Vincentian writer. There's not much punctuation, and the closest thing to a fifth sentence is in parentheses, so here are that one and the next "sentence":

(Oh I forgot to tell you all the time
one of us white)

Well we not settlin een so well
But we smiles a lot when we think about the family
