Quotation


Today, just for fun, I’m taking a cue from Reya, who was recently tagged with this meme. I generally don’t tag people myself, but if you’re interested in trying it, feel free!

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.

Here goes:

--from “The Beatles,” by Bob Spitz.

George had a part-time job as a butcher's delivery boy. Ah, the secret lives of the rich and famous!
