The Friday 56

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.

I'm still reading We Are Not Ourselves.

From page 336 (I'm going with multiples of 56):

Frank and Ruth, Cindy and Jack, Tom and Marie, Evan and Kelly: they arrived ll at once, as if they'd rented a bus for the occasion. She tried to distract them with drinks and a flurry of hanging coats and shuttling dishes. She was trying to think of an alibi for Ed when he appeared in the door to a round of salutations.

She directed everyone to the dining room. She had decided to say that the occasion for their gathering was no occasion, that they simply wanted to see close friends and didn't want to wait until Christmas to do so. It wasn't a lie, exactly; she was very happy to have them there. For months now, she'd had to make excuses for not seeing them.

Now I'm really curious why she'd been avoiding all of them and now brings them all together. I'd read this one, for sure.
