Twenty-Three Five

From Octopus' Garden:

1. Go into your archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.

"Covered with new snow and seeming so close that I could almost reach out and touch them."

Kind of disappointing for a sentence. In fact it's a frag. But what can I say?

Here's perhaps a more interesting one from post 22:
"Usted tiene que encontrar una copia de la quinto sinfonía de Mahler."

Or from post 24:
"Our elderly neighbor feels spry enough/to climb a ladder and wash her windows/(we rush over to help!) while her grandson/wheels out his motorbike for ride."

Oh, yours are good, Peter! I love the randomness of it all, and the surfacing of these intriguing sentences popping up around in blogs throughout the blogosphere . . . sort of like an Exquisite Corpse strung throughout the internet like Christmas lights.
