The Friday 56 - Week 210

Welcome to Week 210!

Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post to the Linky at Freda's Voice. Add the post url, not your blog url. It's that simple.

I had to share this passage because I certainly wasn't expecting to find it.

As soon as someone entered the restroom, I rattled harder.

"Hey, are you okay in there?" the voice responded.

"Yeah, I'm fine. But my door's jammed."

"Oh, dear, I'll see if I can help." She sounded like an older woman, but I'd take help at any age. Together we pushed, pulled, rattled, and strained.

"Honey, this baby ins't going nowhere," she exclaimed.

I became indignant. "Well, if the door isn't going to budge, I'm coming under!" Without hesitating, I dropped to the floor and stuck my legs under the door.

She gasped. "Ma'am? You're in a cast."

Great teases. Now I'm wondering why in the world she has a cast on. I can picture her, crawling under the door. Have you every had to do that? ^_^

Great offering. There must be a huge gap under the door, or, I'm thinking - perhaps she's a ghost?

Very interesting snippets. I guess if you can't climb over it, one has to go under to escape the jammed bathroom stall! Nice #56!

That's got to be one of the most uncomfortable situations, having to crawl out from under a bathroom stall.

Oh my, what a rotten situation to be in but I'm curious about the book now. What is going on?

This one sounds fun already. I've had to go under the door before, but not with a cast on. LOL

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I think I finally made it out to all your blogs. It was a busy week with two closings, so I am far, far behind.
