Book meme

My friend, Mary, tagged me for this book meme.

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.

I didn't have any books around me when I found out I was tagged for this meme. I looked around, and I found one beside my couch that I started reading several months ago and haven't picked up in quite a while. Anyway, here goes...

The book is The Seven Pillars of Health by Don Colbert, MD.

Sentences 5-7 on pg 123 are...

"Since she was only thirty years old and appeared to be in good physical shape, I had failed to ask her about exercise on the first visit. However, seeing that her condition was unchanged, I questioned her and learned that she did not exercise. I had her start jumping on a rebounder first thing in the morning for only five minutes, gradually increasing her time as she became conditioned, and told her to continue with my previous recommendations."

For some background, this patient came with complaints of severe headaches, fatigue, acne breakouts, and severe constipation. She had a bowel movement only once a week since her teens. Of course, this little bit of exercise solved ALL of these problems. mmm hmm....

If all it took was 5 min a day of jumping on a rebounder, miss tons-of-complaints clearly does not have little ones in her house to chase all day long.

I am going to tag Nancy, Janelle (who just added a shelfari bookshelf to her blog), Angela (who told me about shelfari), and anyone else who wants to play along....just let me know if you do!
