Tuesday Teaser 2

Here's today's exerpt for the Tuesday Teaser, lifted from the collected works of Flannery O'Connor:

"He didn't like flowers, but the geranium didn't look like a flower. It looked like the sick Grisby boy at home and it was the color of the drapes the old ladies had in the parlor and the paper bow on it looked like the one behind Lutish's unform she wore on Sunday's."  

So this quote is from "The Geranium," which is a *flipping, flipping*--or rather, the--short story in  colection of prose and short stories of the same title. Unlike last week's Tuesday Teaser, these two sentences as you can tell, are sequential. The lines I posted from The Good Earth were not, becase I didn't want it to be too much of a spoiler.

Happy reading, all!
