Here are the rules:

2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
The book I am currently reading and thoroughly enjoying (and would heartily recommend) is: I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This! by Mr Bob Newhart. More than a memoir, this has snippets of some of his best bits and both onstage and backstage stories that will have you laughing out loud (so be careful where you choose to read it, as I learned when I was reading it in the waiting room at saintly daughter's neurologist's office and burst out laughing unexpectedly, scaring a poor older couple nearly to death).
page 123 sentences 5 - 8: (he is talking about the birth of his children) I am adding sentence five for contextual purposes.
Back then in the sixties, fathers waited in the fathers' room. It's sort of a torture chamber they devised to drive the fathers nuts while their wives are having the babies. There was one guy in there whose wife had already given birth so he was superior to everyone else. He was chewing on a cigar and gloating.
