Book Tag

Now that both Th. and Cricket have tagged me in a roundabout and sneaky way, I feel obligated to do this.

Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages).
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog.
5. Tag 5 people.

"The man needing cables accused the black man of being an Uncle Tom, protecting a white woman from a black man."

From Navigating Differences: Friendships Between Gay Men and Straight Men by Jammie Price.

I will now tag five completely random people who are not I repeat NOT necessarily my five favorite people in the world (sorry to the rest of you; rest assured that you're number six):
  1. FoxyJ,
  2. Scot,
  3. Mama[Mormon],
  4. Craig, and
  5. editorgirl.

Man, we're really picking peaches!

I'm pretty sure this meme is designed to make everyone feel really stupid. I've never seen this posted with a line from The Feynman Lectures on Physics, or The Wealth of Nations.

Mr. Fob said...

Th.: Mine is totally better than yours.

Rebecca: Well I didn't feel stupid before, but now that you mention it... In my defense, my book is not only academic but it's cutting edge gay and lesbian studies, gender studies, and even--apparently, as I haven't actually read page 123 yet--a little bit of race theory. I pooh on the Wealth of Nations.

Mmmm. Peaches.

Mine was dumb too.

Nevertheless, the blog gods will bless you for your obedience to their decree.

I am not necessarily one of your favorite people?

I've decided to think you were referencing the others with that line. Clearly, I'm your most favorite person. :)

Right, right, that's exactly what I meant.
