The Friday 56, Appointment with Death

* 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 Appointment With Death by Agatha Christie. You can’t really go wrong with Agatha Christie.

The sentence:

It’s really much better to be friendly – and kind. You could be if you tried.

I don’t know. I think it depends on who you are supposed to be friendly and kind to. Some people make well-nigh impossible.

I agree Becca, being friendly and kind to the person trying to maybe shoot you or stab you would be a little much even for a character in a book.. However, since most of the time that advice does hold true being friendly and kind is not too hard to do... (Even when you are faced with the same sour faced employee at WalMart checkout stand week after week, she actually makes it easier because it is such a contrast to the mood and vibe she gives off you want to smile to break the tension of the poor folks in the line with you!)
