The Friday 56: 23 Hours

The Friday 56 is a weekly bookish meme hosted by StorytimeWithTonya.  The rules are simple:
Grab the book nearest you.  Right Now.
Turn to page 56.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comment section of this blog.
Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

"Come on.  Tell me." She sighed.  

That was laughable for a first-time Friday 56.  "Come on."  That says so much.  Thank goodness the rules allow me to add a couple or that would just sound stupid.  Laura, vampire slayer, is talking to her cell mate Gert who's giving her the silent treatment because Laura hurt her feelings and didn't want to talk to her before.

Oh well, there it is, my first Friday 56.


  1. Yes, sometimes the sentences are ridiculously short (or long...) - welcome to the club :)
    Here's mine

  2. I love your pretty purple blog layout! That looks like a good book. :) Here's mine!
