On with the Game
‘“Now, I give you fair warning,” shouted the Queen, stamping on the ground as she spoke; “either you or your head must be off, and that in about half no time! Take your choice!”
The Duchess took her choice, and was gone in a moment.
“Let’s go on with the game,” the Queen said to Alice: and Alice was too much frightened to say a word. . .’
I got tagged by Max (Queen of the blog scene and author of the award winning screen play, Excess Baggage, which was made into a major motion picture) so, of course, I did exactly what she said and reached to my left into the nearest bookshelf, pulling out the Garberville phone book (Oct 2005 because, hey, even though it’s my nearest shopping area, it’s another phone company and I have to beg old ones from town folk) Of course, being it’s the G-ville phone book and, a town of 2000 does not have 123 pages in its directory, I decided I’d better examine the Game rules.
If I don’t comply who knows what will happen to my head.
1. Curse the person who tagged you. (Never! Max is mean. . . so, even though she is a city slicker, I speak respectfully to her at all times.)
2. Grab the nearest book. (Tried that. Didn’t work.)
3. Open it to page 123.
4. Find the fifth sentence.
5. Post the next three sentences.
6. Tag five people.
So since this is a book lover’s meme, I chose a book I love “Alice in Wonderland” turned to page 123 and got the Queen. The passage seemed appropriate. . .
So, those of you I tag had better be off in a moment to post your response ‘cause Queen Max won’t take no for an answer.
