Ok, since I've finished my Bitchin' Mittens (and thank you all for your very kind and supportive comments!), and I have a little time on my hands, I thought I'd do something a little fun. I read this on Bugsy's Blog, and thought it would be a hoot:
Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 123. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
This is from my closest book:
"It is vain to say that human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity; they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. Millions are condemed to a stiller doom than mine, and millions are in silent revolt against their lot. Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."
That's my three sentences. BUT, the author continues:
"Women are supposed to be very calm generally; but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more priveledged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them; if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced neccessary for their sex."
(I just HAD to keep going because of the "knitting stockings" reference. Hehehe... LOL!)
Now, any idea the book and the author? I'll let you stew on that one. Is this a contest? I haven't decided, but I suppose it could be, if I felt like it. I could ponder on what a prize could be... Is this asking for trouble? I'm thinking so.... Thanks, Bugsy!
