>My dear, lovely, wonderful, brilliant friend, Kathleen Duey, has tagged me. I assume I did something to her in another life that has caused her to unleash this blogging Cerberus-headed nightmare (actually technically it would be a Cerberus and two thirds nightmare since I have to now tag five friends and we all know Cerberus only has 3 heads and I need two more heads to make that image work, but I digress). Yes, if you read the brackets I have to tag 5 friends. Who am I mad at today?
Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Once you’ve posted your three sentences, tag five people and post a comment to the blog of whomever has just tagged you. Therefore I will comment on Kathleen’s blog . If I tagged you, you should be posting a comment on my blog. Nothing nasty. : )
Here I go to reach, ugh, for the nearest book. Oh, it’s The Alienist by Caleb Carr, this should be fun:
“It’s the obvious interpretation, if you’ve got a body with a cut throat. But I noticed almost immediately that there was extensive damage to the laryngeal structures, especially the hyoid bone, which in both cases was fractured. That, of coures, indicates strangulation.”
“I don’t understand,” I said.
Hope no one was in the middle of eating a burger…
It is an excellent book.
Actually that wasn’t so painful. And look, I finally posted to my blog! It’s been months. Want to know what’s been slowing me down, then visit the good ol’ Hunchback.
