Page 123, para 5…

I was tagged by Jo long time back. But couldn’t do it as I was busy and then I completely forgot about it. Sorry Jo.

I am supposed to write the 5th paragraph of the page 123 of the book I am currently reading. (if the page does not have 5th paragraph, take the last paragraph. And if the book doesn’t have page no. 123, take the last page.) I don’t know the reason for the tag as the importance of the fifth paragraph from page 123 of a book as it can be anything.

For example, I am currently reading Playing for Pizza by John Grisham. The fifth paragraph of the page 123 is a single sentence:

After 10:00p.m., it was almost impossible to find a space anywhere near his apartment, and it was not unusual to park a dozen blocks away.

In the case of the book that I read last—Kill Me by Stephen White—it is an even shorter sentence:

But had I been ready for a wife, when Thea and I said “I do”?

So I thought of doing something more meaningful. So here is a sentence (it is the only sentence on that page) of page 123 from Messiah’s Handbook by Richard Bach.

If you want to meet someone who can fix any situation you don’t like, who can bring you happiness in spite of what other people say or believe, look in a mirror, then say the magic word: “Hello.”
