Via Emily, via Ben Kepple, a game:
1. Grab the nearest book."All right, I tried," I said, and fingered it out and forked it over. -- Gambit by Rex Stout.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
(Since the random obscurity of the sentences seems to be the point, I won't explain who the speaker is or what he's talking about.)
