First Lines from the Muses
Here are their first lines - please add your own (thus joining the Muses). Rules are simple - you may choose any first line from this post or its comments and use it to write a story, a poem, a play, what-have you. But of course, if you publish your work, you must change the first line - for it isn't really yours - it is the sole property of the Muses. And if you post your work online, you must acknowledge (via a link to this page) the source of your first line.

out of the house, did she really need to take the damn things?
