Friday five - great opening lines
"Have I told you the drone's penis snaps off during intercourse with the queen bee?" asked Augusta. A Recipe for Bees, Gail Anderson Dargatz
People, years later, blamed everything on the bees: it was the bees, they said, seducing Vera Lang, that started everything. What the Crow Said, Robert Kroetsch
When it came to love, my mother's big advice was that there were WARNING SIGNS. The Secret Life of Prince Charming, Deb Caletti
Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, J.K. rowling.
I have hundreds of favorite first lines - what about you?
