{OBVIOUSLY AN IDIOT}

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Wait, scratch that, who hasn’t heard that one before. Too cliché, too obvious. What a waste of time starting a story out about the inevitable things. Everyone goes through good times and bad times. After all, this is the city of hope, broken dreams and repair shops. Plus we can’t just start out with some narration that gives the whole meaning of the story away, it's too soon, it's trivial. Too expected. We have to give them something more to work towards. Surprise them. Something less revealing. Something with a little more pizazz. I just used to word pizazz. That’s something someone would say selling real estate. Why should we give them anything at all? I sure as hell don’t want to listen to some guy talk in the first thirty seconds of the story about the fucking story. I want to read something else. This is garbage. I want to read anything at this point. Something with fewer words. Yeah, that’s it, fewer words. That would be perfect.
