Another book meme!

This one comes from the Psalmist. This is one that--depending on circumstances--could be either edifying, bewildering, or just plain silly.

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)

I was trying to mark the hem of the Scientist's new slacks, but I haven't sewn in years and wasn't sure of what I was doing. The book I consulted is still here at hand: Singer Sewing Essentials (1984, and it still looks new).

Find Page 123.

Find the first 5 sentences.
(As we join our story in progress, we find our nameless heroine attempting to insert a zipper, using a glue stick. They didn't teach me that in eighth grade home ec.)

Post the next 3 sentences.
"Let glue dry for a few minutes. 10) Pull both threads at bottom to wrong side. Tie all four threads, using pin to pull knot close to zipper (page 59)."

Tag 5 people.
I can't remember who has already done this; if you have, please disregard the tag! But I'm sure you can come up with something more edifying than this! I'll tag Mindy, Jan, Diane, Kievas, and PG!

All right, I just found this, and I'll get to it soon!

I don't think that's silly; you showed you didn't cheat by picking and choosing some holy or academic sort of book. And your sentences weren't very long to have to type, either.

Well done!

Thanks for the tag...there seems to be a lot of variety in the books!

I played over at my place. I may get some sort of award for most obtuse sentence.
