Boardello Worse Written Opening Sentence  Reply with quote  

Many of you know of this: http://www.bulwer-lytton.com/

Lets see what all you talented (or in this case untalented might be a plus) guys and gals can come up with.

Rules are simple:

1. Write an sentence that would make a reader say: I paid for this book???

2. It must involve someone in or something about our own little boardello.

3. Make me laugh.

I cocked my eyes and ears carefully as the snap, snap, snap of latex-like gloves ascended up to me from behind....

Thanks, Amigo! Lets get crackin' guys & gals. I'll submit one to help things along...

Chris, also know as the Author Guy, started his morning like every morning, by checking out his message board, thinking surely this time, yes, this time, Steve would post a new picture of himself in some black slingbacks, because fashion in this case would also be a incentive to continue writing...after all, if he saw the cute little slingbacks with those big toes peeking out, or in Steve's case, flapping over the front edge of the shoes, he would without a doubt decide writing that morning would be a better use of his time instead of wondering if Steve had used "Tropical Sunset or "Toledo Red" on said digits and if he could use them to hold a fork.

Next please...

Well, that caused some water to squirt out of my nose.

And just FYI, one of my co-workers at Anthrocon was the Fabulous Tina, she of the Awesome Shoes that also happen to fit Sgt. Steve. In the past couple of years The Fabulous T has lost rather amazing amounts of weight, to the point that she's actually declined one shoe size. She has set aside the infamous Red Pumps for me, delivery at some as-yet-undetermined date.

Sorry for the threadjack, please return to the Bulwar-Lytton contest.
