Free to Good Home: A First Line

Here's a great first line for a novel, for anyone who wants it:

I'm the guy who always gets the shopping cart with the gimpy wheel.

You can credit me in the acknowledgments. You're welcome.


  1. LMAO you too? I thought I was the only one. Woman to get the buggy with the gimpy wheel that is.

    Even though I have hair in weird places. I am a woman. ;-)

  2. Also, I am the girl who always picks the longest effing line, behind punters who WRITE CHECKS as if writing checks was in any way shape or form acceptable in this plastic world.

  3. I'm glad I found this.

    Been looking for a decent first line for years.

    Excellent work.
