Teaser Tuesday (19 October)

It's that teasin' Tuesday time again!

Tim was getting a bad vibe. Not a look-out-he's-a-werewolf kind of vibe, just a feeling that the guy might be tedious. 
The stranger said, "I jumped out of an airplane with my dog." 
On the other hand, the best hope of a memorable barroom conversation is to have the good luck to encounter an eccentric. 

(p. 10-11, The Good Guy. Dean Koontz.)

[Sisko] reached into the crib and scooped his daughter up in his arms. Check for leakage, the Old Dad instincts told him. Structural integrity may be compromised. 

(p. 204, Worlds of Deep Space Nine volume 2: Trill and Bajor.) Quotation is from J. Noah Kym's Fragments and Omens.

  3. Great teasers! I was always amazed at some of the conversation people had when sitting at the local pub. Nothing like alcohol to loosen up the tongue!

  9. "Structural integrity may be compromised."
