So, I got tagged by Ken at http://teaching-and-all-that-jazz.blogspot.com/. I'm VERY EXCITED! I've never been tagged before.
Here are the rules: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same.
The book closest to me is the one I'm currently reading, "The Whole Story and Other Stories," by Ali Smith. I just found her and I love her. I'm not up to page 56 yet, but I will skip ahead.
I know, you say, defeated. I was wondering about that.
And anyway, I go on, but gently, because I know the effect it will have. The thing about your tree is, it belongs to someone else. It's not your tree to take. Is it?
And now for the tagging:

This almost makes up for being picked last my entire childhood.
