The Friday 56: 1/23/09

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This from The Encyclopedia of Ancient Myths and Culture:

Zeus heard him from Olympus - they were all up there watching - and sent his warlike
daughter, Athene of the flashing eyes, down to help. Unknown to Heracles, she gave him
new courage and he stepped out into the open, rolling a stone in front of
one of the entrances; he entered the other one and slew the lion,
strangling it as easily as he had the snakes when he was a baby.

I'm not kidding! I have the cookbook sitting right infront of my computer screen! Too funny.

And can I just add and "Amen" to that - and a "Ditto" . . . .

HAHA! This is especially ironic since I'm about to cook dinner. New Indian cookbook. I'm so excited!
