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 reading Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny.

From page 35:

Graham regarded her silently for a moment.  "Did you talk to anyone besides the assistant cubmaster?"

"Hmmm?" Audra peered at him, her eyes beady with tequila.

"I said, did you talk to anyone?  Did you network?"

She looked thoughtful.  "Well, yes, there was a woman at the beginning of the party.  I can't recall her name, but she had wild frizzy black hair.  Did you talk to someone like that?"

Graham shook his head.

"I must say, I found her quite---intrusive," said Audra, who had once interrupted a complete stranger on a crosstown bus to say that the symptoms she was describing sounded like bacterial vaginitis.  "She kept asking what Matthew's issues were, what medications he takes."
