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!

In seventh grade Wally took Home Ec (I think they call it something else these days, but really, it's home ec). The teacher sent home a notice that the students were to make their own beds every day for a week. I was suppose to keep track of this and sign off at the end of the week. But of course they make their own beds! I wrote on the form "What's next? Academic credit for taking out the trash?"
Oh, that came back to bite me in the ass.
