Hey look, I got tagged

Thanks to Steph's Anthesis of Boring I have been tagged. (What goes around comes around I guess.

The instructions for this tag--

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ/blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

(Steph didn't do this on her blog, but I think the point of this tag is to "write" a book, so you keep the previous tag's entry. So the first section is from Steph, the second from me.)

"Enough," she commanded.

I asked the guard what they were, and he said, "Them's pigs 'n chickens." I was thinking that I'd had the sense to go on living in that old town I might have just met this prison guard in school and married him and had a parcel of little kids by now. It would be nice, living by the sea with piles of little kids and pigs and chickens, wearing what my gradmother called wash dresses, and sitting about in some kitchen with bright linoleum and fat arms, drinking pots of coffee.
