These "memes" seem to be going around lately, like the flu. (That analogy will be relevant when you read my answer!) How can I pass this one up when the instructions tell you to pick up the nearest book? This one is from Kristine's blog. Instead of tagging anyone, I'll just invite people to participate: If you post this on your blog, leave me a comment so I can come look. Or, just leave your answer in the comment section.
Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
The 2003-2004 flu season was particularly bad, with more reported infections and fatalities than usual. But when all was said and done, there were a total of 153 deaths in children seventeen years and younger in the forty states that were studied. If we included all fifty states, we could guess there were at most 200 deaths in children that year.
