meme – page 123

I’ve been tagged for two memes within 24 hours! The first was a trip down memory lane and a peek into the future all in one post. Very fun. Relaxing. More than a few minutes viewing you tube videos of old McDonald’s commercials.

This meme is pretty cool. Michelle (the artist) tagged me with this one. Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages.)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Link back to the person who tagged you.
6. Tag five people.

So, the thing is . . . when I sit at my desk, i am literally surrounded by books. (I’ll have to post a photo sometime.) What to choose, what to choose. hmmm.

Office 2003 Timesaving Techniques. (yeahhhhNO.)
Mastering XHTM Premium Edition. (no again.)
The Bibliophile’s Dictionary. (too weird)
I could go into my daughter’s room and get Skippy Jon Jones (yeah, Michelle!)

Okay, here’s one:
The Story Factor, inspiration, influence and persuasion through the art of storytelling
by Annette Simmons.

This should be interesting. I haven’t even cracked the book until now.

“We have already covered the idea of touching our common humanity, but it may be a surprise to realize that the path to universality is via our uniqueness. If you want someone to think about their mother, tell a story that specifically describes your mother, a specific day when she took you to school, the clothes she wore, the model of car she drove, and so forth. Without effort, memories of their mother will surface.”

I think I’ll keep this one off the shelf for a while.

So, who to tag, who to tag. Lurkers. I tag you. You don’t even have to link back! Just . . . tag!

  1. Hi there,

    Just saw that you visited me blog and wanted to return the favour. Funny memes especially this one. And I just wanted to say how cool it was to watch the clip from Story of Us which I love (Bruce is easy on the eye) because, as you said, that clip describes a marriage.

    I love this so much that, if you don’t mind, I’m going to post it on my blog too (if I can, I’m technically dyslexic!)

    Thanks
    BG
