non-first-line firsts

Friday Firsts* Copy/paste the question & button.
* leave a comment and link to your post.
* There'll a puzzle, sometimes, answers next Friday. Most consistent first correct answer will get a prize (after the Guru shows me how I can do that).
*Lastly let me know what you think... got ideas for improvements?

the guru says she finds first lines a bit of a challenge so I’m going for something a bit different this week.
