Me Me Me Me Me Me Meme

My gracious and furrilous running mate, the esteemed Dr. Zaius tagged me with a book meme. It goes thus:
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. Tag five people.
I confess to having cheated a bit, as the nearest book to me was actually Soldier of Fortune magazine, page 123 contained an offering for "Tactical Pants"I do think they are lovely. I'm having Enrique compose a short inquiry to this company about the possibility of tactical underpants. Happy Tactical Underpants. Divine.

The next closest book was the "Bartender's Companion. Not exactly literary nor composed in sentences. So I wandered into Enrique's lounge since it was closer to me at the time (adjacent to the Underpantsatorium in the LairTM) than the library.

I found "Sophie and the Rising Sun" by Augusta Trobaugh. Here is the requested excerpt:

And like I said, when I get scared I get angry. Always have. Always will.


Apparently this book is about a Japanese man in a small southern town in the 1940's. He is taken in as a gardener by Miss Anne. He has a secret past. I wonder if this book strikes a personal chord with Enrique. He doesn't seem like a man with a past. But then those are the ones who've got one, aren't they?

Oh, THAT's where the handcuffs go. Silly me, I kept them in my back pocket.

I see that rather than a banjo on his knee, the invisible tactical pants wearer keeps an iPod there.

Unless that's a bomb detonator!

I have those pants. In khaki. I suspect you will look far more fabulous in them than I do.

Jeepers! If my underpants get any more tactical, I may burst!
