Dotting the I(ntro)s And Crossing The T(easer)s
It's Tuesday! And you know what that means... it's time for Tuesday Intros and Teaser Tuesday!
So to take part in Tuesday Intros all you have to do is share the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are currently reading or are going to read. Then head over to Bibliophile by the Sea to add your link and check out other intros.
And to take part in Teaser Tuesday go to a random page in the book you are reading, being careful not to include spoilers pick 2 teaser sentences from that page and share. Then tootle over to Should Be Reading to add your link and see other teasers.
Here are mine:
In one way, at least, our lives really are like movies. The main cast consists of your family and friends. The supporting cast is made up of neighbors, co-workers, teachers, and daily acquaintances. There are also bit players: the supermarket checkout girl with the pretty smile, the friendly bartender at the local watering hole, the guys you work out with at the gym three days a week. And there are thousands of extras - those people who flow through every life like water through a sieve, seen once and never again. The teenager browsing graphic novels at Barnes & Noble, the one you had to slip past (murmuring 'Excuse me') in order to get to the magazines. The woman in the next lane at the stoplight, taking a moment to freshen her lipstick. The mother wiping ice cream off her toddler's face in a roadside restaurant where you stopped for a quick bite. The vendor who sold you a bag of peanuts at a baseball game.
He was gone from our lives a week later, and he went alone. Patsy and Morris - dubbed Tag-Along-Morrie by the kids in MYF - were already gone by then.
