Good morning!  It’s Friday and time for The Friday 56, hosted by Storytime with Tonya.

Earlier I had hopped on over to her blog and found nothing…and then I went to a couple of other blogs…Nothing again!!  So I ranted about all that for awhile on my Meditations blog, before heading over to Moonbeams & Rainbows to post about one of my favorite soap characters/actors.

So here we are…and here’s how this meme works.

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that 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 comments 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.


On a stack to the right of my computer desk (atop a bookcase, actually!), I found a book that’s been on my TBR stacks for a long, long while.  It has now graduated to my office stacks, which is like a promotion, I guess.

[The] Position, by Meg Wolitzer, is the masterful story of one extraordinary family at the hilarious height of the sexual revolution—and through the thirty-year hangover that followed.

Now I’m wondering why I haven’t dived into this one yet?  It sounds like the story of my life!  lol

People always wanted to hear about that time, that strange experience, and usually she was willing to say a few things to them about it.  Over time she formulated a canned response, which she used again and again, something along the lines of:  Well, it was pretty intense….p. 56.

That’s it for today…hope you’ll click on over here and share your own tidbits.  Happy Friday!!
