Day Fourteen: First Sentence

In my mind, my kitchen is filled with crackers and cheese, roast chicken leftovers, farm fresh eggs, and coffee beans ready to grind.  The reality is that I keep my Smith & Wesson in the cookie jar, my Oreos in the microwave, a jar of peanut butter and hamster food in the over-the-counter cupboard, and I have beer and olives in the refrigerator.

                                                                                                          by Janet Evanovich

Sorry, I had to cheat and put the first two sentences.  The first one really didn't make much sense without the second one in tow. 
I absolutely love this series of novels.  There is always a smile, a giggle, and even a belly laugh while I'm reading.  They make me happy! 
I have recently finished number 19 in the series, and number 20 came out this past fall.  I am trying to hold off reading that one for a little bit - adding to the anticipation of the read, knowing it's the last for awhile.  


  1. *adds another book to wish-list* ;)

  2. I love how the writing easily helps us to create mental images and a sense of place. I could almost smell both kitchens!

  3. I agree with Johanne, especially having not had breakfast yet. :-)

  4. What an excellent first couple of sentences! Thanks for sharing!

  5. LOL! These sentences are such a treat. I read them like they were Oreos in the microwave. Thank you!

  6. I love that series. It always cracks me up!
