Monticello, a town in Upstate New York, is where we spent the summer of 1965, the last summer of my childhood, with my aunt and uncle. Having never traveled far from Kansas City, this was the adventure of my eleven-going-on-twelve-year-old lifetime.
Unlike KC, restaurants like the pizzeria where I had my first ever, true pizza, stayed open all night.
My brother handed me the red pepper. “Try this.”
Aunt Lu scowled. “Go easy, Rochelle.”

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort, and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort, then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.
If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash, and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash, and your data is corrupted ’cause the index doesn’t hash, then your situation’s hopeless and your system’s gonna crash!
If the label on the cable on the table at your house, says the network is connected to the button on your mouse, but your packets want to tunnel on another protocol, that’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down…

This will be fun.
Somehow, I discovered this hugely amusing website that gives you an opening sentence to your story.
What was amusing about it, though was…
it kinda works.
Some of the opening lines it generates are pretty darned good. As in, I’d read on if I were reading them at the start of a book.
Check it out.
Not bad, right?
Funny! But I want to read more.
A little strange, but okay…
I really like that one.

Its that every other Friday again where I give you a first line, and you all get to write the rest. This prompt alternates with Amanda’s Music Prompts, so make sure to check back next Friday for some musical inspiration.
I’ll provide the first line, you get to write whatever comes afterward. Length, genre, and structure is completely up to you. Feel free to modify the line as you see fit, adding punctuation, quotes, or other bits if so desired. Or for more of a challenge, change nothing. You have a week to write it, enjoy!
Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction. Create a link (ping-back) to this post and add your link to Mister Linky below.
Your line for this week is:
I’m going to tell you how I lost my inheritance.
