If you were to read one of the following as the opening line (or lines) of a book, which one would you like most? Assume the book is (hypothetically) a collection of humorous (and sometimes tragic) stories and essays about growing up in an extended and eccentric family in rural Alabama in the 1970s/1980s.
All three open different stories, of course.
Thanks for any opinions, suggestions, tithes, or offerings.
I vote for #1. Number #3 could be good, if you could better spell out that, yes, Mama was indeed serious about attempting suicide. Right now it just seems like come hell or high water, Dad is itching for a road trip.
