Rejected openings to a novel-in-progress #1

"Several moments passed after Gavin farted before he realised that the ipod he was listening to may have inhibited his capacity to determine whether his silent release had indeed been as discreet as he had planned it to be. He quickly looked from side to side to see if his interlocutors at the International Nuclear Weapons Disarmament and Counter-Proliferation Conference had noticed."

Apologies for opening this exciting series with a piece of scatology. But you know, whatever, as the kids say.

There is no better start to a novel, nor end to a meal.
