Book Meme - Tidbit

Tidbit has always loved to read, either alone:

Or with a friend:

So it was no surprise when Lola tagged Tidbit for the ever-popular book meme, to which the rules are as follows:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Unfortunately, the book she was reading, Bunnicula had less than 123 pages, so she was forced to select from the bookcase in her room. At bunny-eye level, the pickings were grim: mostly stuff about computers, strategic planning and the like. But then her gaze fell upon Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants, which sounded like a very fine book-- so good she took a nibble off the spine just to be sure.

All seemed well, so without further ado, she chewed to page 123, where she found the following about cherry leaves:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration opposed this alternative therapy, claiming it didn't work and that there was a risk of cyanide poisoning. They took it off the market and took legal action against any doctors using it.

Yikes! Tid will not be eating cherry leaves anytime soon and strongly recommends her bunny buddies exercise similar caution!

Since so many have done this meme already, Tidbit tags whoever hasn't played yet and says to stay far away from cherry leaves!

B liked the pics since Runaway Bunny used to be one of his favorites.
