RANT: Giggle Fit of Pride

Well, there's little more enjoyable than popping over to your novel for a quick revision only to find that you absolutely adore the first line of your novel. So, forgive me for my moment of boasting (promise it'll be over soon), but here is what, to me, is an absolute gem of a line:

I have edited Chapter 1 at least fifteen or so times. It's the chapter that's given me the most trouble (unless you consider the last chapter but endings always bug me). The fact that the first line finally feels right to me, makes me go 'wheee!'
