I've been tagged!
I've been tagged by Kim to do a meme. I'm supposed to pick up the book nearest me, go to page 123, find the fifth sentence and then type and post the next three sentences after the fifth one and then I'm supposed to tag five people. (Sahm , Unicorn , Faith, works, and crafts , Frugal for life, and You Grow Girl.) Ok. Here I go!, The book is "A Year Without 'Made in China:' One Family's True Life Adventure in the Global Economy " and the author is Sara Bongiorni.
"Happy Birthday," she told him. Now, as I study the package in my lap, I picture myself marching back to the entrance gate and handing my free cooler back to the girl. I'd work my facial features into some appropriately pathetic configuration before handing her the unopened cooler and saying something like, "I'm sorry. I cannot accept this free Chinese cooler from the Welk family. It has to do with a New Year's resolution, which I'm starting to regret, right about now. Thanks, anyway."
(Ok it's more than 3 sentences but I didn't want to break up the quote.) :)
