A funny thing happened on the way to this meme...

I'm not much of a meme girl - actually, this is the first I'm posting. Bu-ut... one of the instructions for this was to open the nearest book to page 23 and, when I grabbed the nearest book, I managed to open it first time on... yes, page 23! So, I decided that this was obviously something that needed sharing:

1. grab the nearest book
2. open the book to page 23
3. find the fifth sentence
4. post the text of the next three sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
6. go on, you know you want to play, too

Sometimes I saw him all wrapped up in the cloud, and invisible, like a cat in a burlap sack. At other times it floated, about the size of a sofa, three or four feet above his head, following him wherever he went. One could think about the man under the cloud before going to sleep; the image of him wandering around from town to town was a sure soporific.

Any other Thurber-lovers out there, btw?
