"Is this seat taken?" I asked the attractive young woman sitting by herself in the lounge.

-- The General's Daughter by Nelson DeMille.  It's a clever beginning, really, because he is approaching an ex-girlfriend who he hasn't seen in a year and he knows won't be happy to run into him.


  1. I like it! It's a good beginnging.

    And thanks for hosting! ;D

  2. Thanks for adding an explanation. That makes all the difference! I'm wondering how the ex-girlfriend answered.

  3. I read the beginning and I thought that's cool, and then your explanation of it changed that!

  4. Wasn't there a movie? It seems like I began to watch and it was too dark.
    This is such a great way to spend Fridays on the internet. Thanks.

  5. Interesting beginning especially with the explanation!
