What’s your opening line?

Here’s mine:

I was in trouble.

Okay, I wasn’t really in trouble.

I was f*cking doomed.

  1. Great opening lines, all I have read so far. Mine is not so inciting, though. From Double-Edged:

    Sitting in the lobby with a magazine in her lap and pretending to be lost in a story, she was wearing a huge blue slouch-hat designed to cover half her face.

  2. I’ll play!

    Cigarette smoke. I had never understood what young people thought was so sexy about smoking cigarettes. Personally, I found everything about the habit disgusting. Yet, here I was, sitting in this smoke alley of a beer joint, the music playing just a little too loud, *almost* resentful that Clara had somehow convinced me to join her at the Book Shelf for the third Saturday in a row.
