A Bit of Friday Morning Lit Fun

Got this in my in-box this morning. Give it a whirl.

1)Grab the nearest book.
2)Open the book to page 123.
3)Find the fifth sentence.
4)Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5)Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

Mine is slightly bizarre. The book next to my computer is "How to Be a Bad Birdwatcher" by Simon Barnes, but you wouldn't think it from the text.

Page 123, Sentances 5-7

"That is what birdwatchers call jizz. Jizz: savour the word. Jizz is a very good word indeed."

I'm not kidding, folks, I'm just writing it down.
