Inspired by Texas Red's postings, I've finally decided to play along with "Teaser Tuesdays."
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly 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
Here's my teaser from page 10 of Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War by Tony Horwitz (a book which I've been trying to finish for over a year!):
"Farb" was the worst insult in the hardcore vocabulary. It referred to reenactors who approached the past with a lack of verisimilitude. The word's etymology was obscure; Young guessed that "farb" was short from "far-be-it-from-authentic," or possibly a respelling of "barf."What's your teaser?
