Follow the Leader

I'm feeling compelled to rant... Thus the title of this post may make you think I'm going to rant about US imperialism, or Kim Jong-Il, our beloved leader. No, just Bren, and it's not even a rant. No, it's a reference to my lack of creativity. Granted, a rant is not about being creative, it's about making people aware of a particular subject. I digress.
  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
  5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
Okay, so the closest text is FRENCH FOR TRAVELLERS, page 123 is 'The Beauty Parlour' and the first of three lines (sentences) would be
with bangs des anglaises
While funnier, it's not an actual 'book', so I'll go get one... be right back. Okay:
Some were told I'd been sentenced to death, others that I would receive a life sentence. The news reached the ears of my wife and mother.
Deling's sister-in-law told her, "Go home to your mother and marry someone else as soon as possible. There's no chance Yun will ever come back home to you."
This is from The Heavenly Man: the remarkable true story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun, which I'm currently reading, and was the closest book.
