His and Hers XXVI  

His and Hers is a weekly discussion of a question or topic relating to marriage. On Friday, my wife and I each write our thoughts on the week's topic. I invite others to do the same with their spouses as an exercise in celebrating marriage. This week's question follows the meme of finding sentence 5 on page 23 in the nearest book to you. This resonates with us because our wedding anniversary is 5/23 (May 23). The question is:

What is the fifth sentence on the 23d page of your favorite book from childhood?

Mrs. Happy's response

from Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls:

By the little wrinkles that bunched up on her forehead, I could tell that Mama wasn't satisfied.

from A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle:

"Sandy and I'll sock anybody who picks on him, but that's about all we can do."
