Tagged by Avery!


Here's a literary meme! Sent to me by the fabulous Avery Gray.
This one is fun and easy...


The rules :
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people & post a comment here once you post it to your blog, so I can come see.
Here goes:

"She was sure before long someone would pass out and fall into the pool and was relieved that the house was full of doctors, just in case. Following the steak sandwiches someone declared that the girls should go topless. Myra was the first to discard her top, flinging it into the pool with a great whoop, then dancing a bouncing frug with Gordon's friend, Dave Immerman."

This is from Judy's Blume's "Adult Novel" "Wifey." Described on the cover as "The National Bestseller of a Very Nice Housewife with a Very Dirty Mind."

Judy Blume wrote this in 1978 and my mom had a copy. I used to sneak and read it when she wasn't home. (Probably around the same time I was sneaking to watch "One Day at a Time!"

I found it in a box of books in my room a few weeks ago and I started reading it again. What a funny book!

Anyway, I tag the Jersey Girls, Feener, LunaNik, Jen at Dirty Little Secret and Stacey. Have fun ladies!

Loved "Wifey" and "Summer Sisters". My Mother thought it was "trash". All the more reason to love it! hee hee.

I never read "Wifey," but I mistakenly left "Forever" laying about one day and boy my mom was pissed. Pretty funny!

Amy said...

I read it too, years ago! Definitely a lot different than Freckle Juice!

Southern Fried Girl said...

I've seen that and always wondered what it was like. You will have to do a review. :)

Stacey @Real World Mom said...

My turn to tag you! So, "Tag, you're it!" :-)

The most risque Judy Blume book I ever read was "Are you there God, it's me Margaret."

("I must, I must, I must increase my bust!")

Being a guy, I never tried it. But it was pretty funny to read when I was 13 or so.
