Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB and anyone can play. Just take two sentences from your current read, post them, and share the link here: Teaser Tuesday
Since two of us contribute to this blog, we're posting two Teasers this week. It's funny that although we chose our posts independently, they are both quotes from old men!
From Miss Pickles, alias Sandra: [*If you want to know why I use this blog name, go to our blog archive for March and read all my "hog" posts.] My two sentences for this week come from Water For Elephants: A Novel by Sara Gruen. I can't give you the page number, because I read it on my Kindle, but these two gems come from the first chapter. Jacob is a 93-year-old man who is in a nursing home, and he's lamenting the fact that he never gets any "real" food.
"Sometimes I think that if I had to choose between an ear of corn or making love to a woman, I'd choose the ear of corn. Not that I wouldn't love to have a final roll in the hay--I am a man yet, and some things never die--but the thought of those sweet kernels bursting between my teeth sure sets my mouth to watering."
From Sandy Ruth: This week's two-sentence teaser is from The Last Time I Saw You by Elizabeth Berg (Page 97.) It's the story of four people and their 40th high school reunion.
"Do things while you still can! Blink a couple of times and you'll be an old fart like me, with memories your only entertainment…."
