Teaser Tuesday!

This is my first time posting to this meme, but I really like the idea, so hopefully I'll remember to do it week to week :P

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

    I'm in the middle of My Life in France by Julia Child. I had a hard time starting it (think it might have had something to do with being really tired at the time), but I've been engrossed by it the last two days!

    Standing up through the Citroen's open sunroof, my six-foot-three-inch, red-cheeked sister pointed a long, trembling finger at the perpetrator and with maximum indignation yelled:  "Ce merde-monsieur a justemente crache dans ma derriere!" Her intended meaning was obvious, but what she said was, "That shit-man just spat out onto my butt!" (p73)

    1. BWAAA-HA-HA! I am so glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read your teaser! It would have come out my nose. That is funny. Now I want to read it. :)
