Book Tagged

I've been booked tagged by Danielle at Life With the Hewitt Family. Check out her blog, she's got the cutest little family!

Here are the rules:  Grab the book closest to you, turn to page 56, start with the 5th sentence and post 2-5 paragraphs. 

After an extra-soapy preliminary shower, I ease myself into the hundred-and-twenty degree jacuzzi, wallowing up to my ears. I bring the book Wicked with me as it's already mis-shapen from too many spills into the bath. The jacuzzi is huge and I'm able to float in the very center, spreading my arms wide, without touching the sides. I look like the Vitruvian Man - if he were wearing a pink and black Mircalesuit that is. As bubbles begin to buffer me against the sides, I feel clean down to my soul.

Since I'm here, I may as well give my pores a treat, so I leave the tub and enter the sauna. I grab a cold drink and lay down my towel before ladling water over the hot rocks. The stones hiss ad pop and the room practically reverberates with heat. I take a washcloth filled with icy water and wipe all the toxins off my face. I squeeze it over my shoulders and the water evaporates before it even hits the wooden bench.

The irony here is that I hit the cold-water-plunge shower between service, and it's the exact same temperature as the water I'm paying $20 to avoid at home. 

This is an exert from the Jen Lancaster book, Bright Lights Big Ass. It's a really funny follow-up to her best-seller, Bitter is the New Black. I haven't read most of it, but so far it's pretty funny. This little tag didn't do it justice. Pick it up!

Now, for my five people to tag I've picked a few of my favorites.  Go check out their blogs!
