Teaser Tuesday (7 Feb)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read – Open to a random page – Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today’s Teaser taken from:
 The Portable Ring Lardner

I and Carey and him set at the same table together for supper.  It to him half an hour longer’n us to eat because he had to excuse himself everyt ime he lifted his fork.

“Doctor told me I needed starch,” he’d say, and then toss a shoveful o’ potatoes into him.  Or, “They ain’t much meat on one o’ these chops,” he’d tell us, and grab another one.  Or he’d say “Nothin’ like onions for a cold,” and then he’d dip into the perfumery.”

“Better try that apple sauce,” says Carey.  “It’ll help your malaria.”

“Whose malaria?” says Ike.  He’d forgot already why he didn’t only hit .356 last year.
