The Friday 56, The History of Food

* 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.

The book this week is The History of Food by Maguelonne Toussaint-Samat. It is a big heavy book that I plan to read a little at a time and hope I can finish by the end of the year. This sentence comes under the heading 'Teonanacatl, the Divine Mushroom of the Aztecs'.

The sentence:

Others foresaw that they would be convicted of adultery, and their heads crushed for that offence; others that they would commit theft, and be executed. And there were many further visions too.

My advice? DON'T EAT THE MUSHROOMS! That doesn't sound divine to me.
