The Friday 56, Who Can Save Us Now?

* 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 Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

My sentence this week comes from Who Can Save Us Now? edited by Owen King and John McNally. It is a book of short stories so page 56 puts us in the story The Horses Are Loose by Cary Holladay.

Her mother is a horse penned in a field, but her mother does not have a long clever nose with which to knock a latch loose.

Don't you want to know what is going on? Should I tell you? Okay, well I guess I'll let you know that it is a metaphor and we are not talking about real horses here. Although I think that takes some of the fun out of it.
