Spin The Bottle: Beer or Wine? Take Your Pick

Help!!!! I've been meme'd! Someone call the paramedics!

Okay, I'm not dying but I have been tagged. Tammi at Love the Eclectic Life spun the beer bottle and it landed on me, ms. merlot. Don't much like the combo but stranger romances have survived.

I don't much like memes, either. Don't like chain letters (I break 'em, so don't send 'em), but this one seems harmless and literary, so I'm game.

Here's the task at hand:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

"Put him on the line," said Brian.
I handed the man the phone. He held it to his ear.

Not very interesting or illustrative of Anne Lamott's charming essays in, Grace Eventually: Thoughts On Faith, but who am I to break the rules.

Now watch me spin the bottle ???

slouching mom
because she'll like a literary meme
baby on bored
because she and I are practically neighbors
vintage thirty
because she makes me laugh
boobs, injuries, and dr. pepper
because her chronicles are incredible
help, i have a teenager
because she is wacky, wild, and entertaining
