The Friday 56 - A Dirty Job



Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions
on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*
Post a link along with your post back to Story Time with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


Happy Friday!
Today the CLOSEST book is right here on my coffee table:

"A Dirty Job" by Christopher Moore



Ok so page 56 starts with a really long sentence fragment so I will count that as the first sentence. So here it is, my Friday 56:

"The dogs arfed a frantic barking salvo at the avian intruders and Charlie put so much body English into wiggling the key in the lock that he felt an atrophied dancing muscle tear in his hip."

I really enjoyed reading this book. It's pretty funny and I enjoy Christopher Moore's writing style.

Thanks for reading!

The dog arfed - I like that!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I saw this book at Costco and didn't pick it up thinking I'd get it later. When I went back there weren't any left!

Hope you have a great weekend.

What makes gospel music so popular is beyond the obvious fact that the songs and melody are catchy and easy to remember, since most gospel hymns do bear these characteristics. Music identifies us and the season in a way that nothing else can. Groban worked for Foster as a rehearsal singer on a series of high-profile events, including the inauguration of Grey Davis as governor of California and the Grammy Awards (at which he rehearsed Foster's "The Prayer" with Celine Dion in place of Andrea Bocelli).
