- Fizzy Thoughts: Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
"You, who have never even been to a Packers game wearing a gigantic wedge of yellow foam cheese on your head, much less added your name to the list of 74,000 people waiting for season's tickets?"
"Yes, me," I imagine myself saying, smiling, always smiling, because that is the state determined social contract among us, and perhaps adding that such a wedge (a cheddar-swiss hybrid, if you've never seen it) took up a precious amount of room in my New York City closet for a long time."

And for your amusement, here I am at a Packers game with my cheesehead:

Hey, you're reading "State by State!" Nice. I hope you're liking it so far. I've been enjoying my own romp through it. When it misses, it misses. But when it hits, it hits really well.

Great teaser and an even better pic!

Never been to a Packers game, never worn a foam cheese head. But, was a cheesehead throughout my childhood and still retain my addiction to dairy products to prove my Wisconsin roots. :-)

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
