Off to a Bad Ending

The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest:

Since 1982 the English Department at San Jose State University has sponsored the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, a whimsical literary competition that challenges entrants to compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels.

Write your own entry for the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. You can choose to submit it or not, but write one anyway. (One sentence, not more than 50 – 60 words and it must be the first sentence to start a fictional novel).
Here’s my first crack at it:
