and give me a code!
Go to the 24th page of the book you are reading and look at the first full sentence.....and make a code out of it! It can be simple, funny, serious....whatever floats your goat! (yes, I know it's supposed to be 'boat' but you don't live with me...around here, trust me...it's goat.)
and in case your sentence is really boring like...'She walked into the room.' Feel free to use the names of objects in the room you are in... like BANANA. or....Ficus. When a ficus walks into the room its a whole lot more interesting!
