Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser" sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser".
4. Please avoid spoilers!

After the family dog opens a plastic pill case and licks it clean...

While the littles (children) zone out, I snatch the National Animal Poison Control magnet from the fridge and bring the could-be-stoned poodle to my side. Gussy exhales. She's heavy. I've dialed the canine 911 with Gus before - also known as the potentially lethal fondue incident.
