First Sentences

She was suffering from a glabrous mucous cyst.
[Pink Sock, unpublished]

(Glabrous, incidentally, means smooth or hairless. This sentence is from the OED. The word is unfairly neglected, I think. "He was gobbled up by the glacier's glabrous lips." "The glutton's glabrous forehead glistened with half-congealed globules of sweat.")
