I was tagged by Chris for this meme...

I love memes! :) And this one is super easy...

1) Grab the book closest to you
2) Open to page 123,go down to the fourth sentence
3) Post the text of the following 3 sentences on your blog
4) Name the author and book title
5) Tag three people to do the same

I actually cleaned off my desk, so I had to get UP and find a book close to me. And the closest one is one I purchased for my girls for Christmas. Ever the courteous mom, I want them to continue to learn.... :) It's called How to Be a Lady by Candace Simpson-Giles

The page is talking about how a lady should treat email....

"If a lady is sending a copy of her email to a second correspondent, she indicates that she is sending a copy in the same way that she would use "cc:" at the bottom of a letter. She knows email is never completely private since it is read on a computer screen and often in an office environment. To save embarassment to herself and to her correspondent, she is discreet about the message she sends."

I have a habit of purchasing ettiquette books for my family.... I am pretty sure Shawn and I are the only ones who reads them. But, one can dream right...?

Thanks for the fun Chris!
