Opening lines meme

mmeriam got it from someplace else, and this is the rhizome of memery in bloggerland - someone does something and then it starts spreading...

Okay, so some of my opening lines.

* When I was a girl and my world broke, I thought I would always divide my life by that night in the mountains - the day before, the day after.

* Water.

* There were only two questions that governed Amais's existence.

* "One. Already. And he was Anghara's."

* It was raining in Roisinan.

* "You smell angry," Aunt Zoe said as she walked through the door

* The first hint of serious trouble came, as trouble always does, unlooked for, stealthily, catching everyone by surprise.

* There lived once in a land far away to the East, so far that it sat right under the sun when it rose every morning, a great king.

* The air smelled odd.

The Cash Family Pirates

cofeeem started this piratical meme - she turns out to be Red Anne Cash, and I, when I took the test (yeah yeah I am a sheep..[grin]) turned out to be Black Anne Cash. So I mentioned as much in the comment thread to the meme post.

She comes back with this:

That Cash thing--we're pirates from a musical family.

Sing it, mateys:

You keep a close watch on my chest of gold.
You say I'm not so daring or so bold.
You say my velvet coat smells much of mold.
Because you're frank
You'll walk the plank.

I'm still giggling.
