Teaser Tuesday

HOST


* 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!


My Teaser:


On Wednesday morning, and about a dozen Vicodin pills later, I am able to shower and wash my hair in preparation for my mother's funeral. I wear a navy blue dress that my mother always liked on me, but I don't bother to blow dry my hair, knowing full well it will end up wavy not straight.

    Very sad. Such a strong contrast between the ordinariness of a Wednesday morning and the disconnection of a dozen Vicodin pills!
