The 5th Sentence

I'm copying welcome to my brain (excellent blog by the way) and doing a little thingy. A thingy that will make my day. My day needs to be made.


This is your chance to leave a random comment that has nothing to do with anything. Such fun.
---------------------------------------

Rules:


*Grab the book nearest you. Right now.



*Turn to page 56.



* Find the fifth sentence.



* Post that sentence as a comment.



* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.



Why are you still looking at this? Grab the nearest book and leave your random comment! Go! Do it! It's funny! :)

Heather of the EO said...

ooooh, Jenn's is so profound.

And vpmsavga, I do that all the time with spelling things quickly and then I notice after I've posted the comment. Thank you for commenting :)

Heidi- I KNOW, it's so great to not have to think :)

Tooj, that could be quite metaphorical. Sometimes I feel like I've only had my "car" for one day and yet it's still "empty."

I just get such a laugh out of imagining what it would be like if we all really commented like this all the time just to confuse people.

a Tonggu Momma said...

That was Best Chinese Names by Liu Xiaoyan.

(I will not translate. This is from an anti-mormon book and this is a FABULOUS sentence (they all are) that shows how completely phsychopathic Mormons are. The best part is that nothing in it is false, but the sentence as a whole is completely untrue (deceitful, misleading). But don't worry, we are assured that this is NOT an anti-Mormon book! It's just meant to show their doctrine as it really is. Phew! Good thing people are writing books for the Mormons, explaining our doctrines. What a favor, since it's so difficult to find an actual member of that church that has any interest in talking about what we believe!)

(Sorry I broke the rules by adding my commentary, but sometimes one MUST!)

Well, the only book I have here at work is the phone book. I finished my reading book last week and I forgot to bring a new one in. But the weird thing is that page 56 of the phone book is a map, and in the 5th section down on the map is exactly the place where my work is. So I found myself. And I didn't even know I was looking...

I have NO idea why I still have this book as my "baby" is about to turn 3. Now that I look at it, all the books near this one are about babies... If only it were a sign of something great to come :-)
