Opening Lines

Write an opening line for the picture below.

IMG_3804Sherry: It was my first day on the job as a private investigator. I tried to be subtle when I snapped the picture but he spotted me.

Liz: I thought I had chosen the best spot around to meet with my hitman-to-be – seedy, private, not many “normal” people around. Boy, was I wrong.

Julie: She had to laugh. Who knew the old cockroach in the salad trick would work so well? That would show her lying, cheating, SOB of a husband that leaving her for his hostess was not only bad for their marriage, it was bad for business. And she’d only just begun.

Jessie: Doug had finally come up with a winning business plan. After all, where better to unload a van full of day old meat products than outside a bar?

Edith: Yeah. Of course he hadda park in the tow zone, draw a bunch of attention to him and Tonio unloading all their bloodstain-removal equipment. If they notice anything inside, and I mean anything, I’m going to have to hire Pattie, my favorite bloodstain-remover remover.

Barb: What he was doing transporting 500 rolls of toilet paper across state lines, I’ll never know.
