Using the Tritest Opening Yet

I have always wanted to use the oldest and tritest line to open a story. And I got my chance to do so in last week’s Laker Weekly.

“It really was a dark and stormy night when I joined my friend Karen Wrigley of Hardy and seven others for ghost hunting at Avenel, an historic museum home in Bedford.”

Yup, stole Bulwer-Lytton’s line and used it in print. I couldn’t help myself! Will somebody stop me!!!

    Oh, Becky threw down a serious challenge. I have another one too: “his hand crept slowly up her thigh.”

    Something tells me that won't fly in a family paper, though. Maybe I'll save it for fiction.
