Saw this over at Oz’s, decided to spread the viral meme:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.

So what was closest for me was How to Walk in High Heels by Camilla Morton, ironically another cheeky Brit book like I mentioned in my latest grammar post. Page 123 is a chapter title page, so there aren’t five sentences, but I’ll post what I have:
