Okay Buff, I love all the French but honestly this is a bit arduous for an introductory chapter. I know you love me, so I’m just telling you like your sugar sliding out of your morning bed that we need to get this train rolling with a little less talk and a lot more action. The waitress is a fascinating phenomenon that’s caught my interest well enough but I’d advise an abbreviated review of passports and packaging. Buff, when you start your book, I want you to GRAB your reader’s attention just like you’re grabbing my ass in the shower... dispense with the soap and conditioner; just drive your pout home.

Thanks for the fascinating and thought provoking review.
You're right or right on with all the comments you have written with this opening chapter.
I'll end up sending my readers into the land of nod lol.
Perhaps to much introspection going on and I'm writing from personal experience rather prefabricated guff.
I had great imagery of me pulling at you in the shower,that awoke my pecker.
