Teaser Tuesday (18)

Click here for more info

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Stealing eggs is a lot harder than stealing the whole chicken.  With chickens, you just grab a hen, stuff her in a sack, and make your escape.  But for eggs, you have to stick your hand under a sleeping chicken.  Chickens don't like this.  They wake all spooked and start pecking holes in your arm, or your face, if it's close.  And they squawk something terrible.
