Liar, Liar

I spent part of the evening completing a questionnaire for Something I Will Announce Shortly, and when I got here:

3. What’s a good first line for a story you’re not going to write yourself?

I responded:

The Devil arrives on cloven ice skates, scraping up a rime of concrete as he skids to a stop.

“Nice haircut,” I say.

“I have great respect for Miss Dorothy Hamill,” the Devil says.

…and then realized I was lying, because I totally have to write that story someday.
