Fifth Sentence Meme

I came across this on another blog.

Here are the Rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

Here's mine: I'm reading A Prayer For Owen Meany By John Irving.

The rain was pelting down as they tried to put the luggage in the car; Uncle Alfred, in the role of their valet, was soaking wet-and since Simon and Noah had hoarded all the confetti for themselves, they were the only throwers. They threw most of it on their father, on Uncle Alfred, because he was so wet that the confetti stuck to him, instantly turning him into a clown.People were cheering from the windows of 80 Front Street, but my grandmother was frowning.

I only have a few pages left to read of this book. It has been a great read! If you are a fan of Irving & havent read it, I suggest picking it up!
