*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.
The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice where I’ll post a sentence of two from page 56 of either the book I’m currently reading or a random book from my shelf. If you would also like to participate, click the link to the host’s blog page.
“LENNY. (After a long pause.) Babe; I feel bad. I feel real bad.
BABE. Why, Lenny?
LENNY. Because yesterday I-I wished it.
BABE. You wished what?
LENNY. I wished that Old Granddaddy would be put out of his pain. I wished on one of my birthday candles. I did. And now he’s in this coma, and they say he’s feeling no pain.
BABE. Well, when did you have a cake yesterday? I don’t remember you having any cake.
LENNY. Well, I didn’t…have a cake. But I just blew out the candles anyway.
BABE. Oh. Well, those birthday wishes don’t count unless you have a cake.
LENNY. They don’t?
BABE. No. A lot of times they don’t even count when you do have a cake. It just depends.
LENNY. Depends on what?
BABE. On how deep your wish is, I suppose.
LENNY. Still, I just wish I hadn’t of wished it.”
