Slappy Is Not a Corpse

Slappy has been tagged by that rotten scoundrel Mr. Freeman over at Zero Unlimited. I dare say he will not be so bold after a midnight visit from my knife toting minions. But Slappy is intrigued and Slappy does read books. Here are the so called rules of this tagging-

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the text of it and the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag three people

You must know, Slappy does not tag and Slappy does not like to be tagged. But Slappy is intrigued and will play Freeman's little game, knowing full well that he shall make that old codger pay dearly. You may want to put a bonus in maintenance's checks as they will be cleaning up a lot of blood very, very soon.

Onward to the tag.

Tree of Evil by Roberta Morrison

"I heard them too."

Before Roy could answer, if he had an answer, Cornelia and Horton came out again on the shade-dappled lanai. Bunty walked between them, sobbing uncontrollably. In a perfect picture of solicitude, Horton's arm was around her shoulders.

Slappy is very disappointed with this book. He bought it because the title sounds like a big hulking evil tree will be killing everything in it's path. But it turns out to be a gothic romance novel. Ptooey!! Slappy spits on it and slashes at it with his long knives and his sabers. So stay out of Slappy's way or he will cut you.... he'll cut you up and down!!!!
