I was browsing through a library, and a book caught my eye. I pulled it out to look, and the opening paragraph was so stupid that I immediately put it back. I went back a few weeks later because I wanted to show someone else this amazing thing. :-) But it wasn't there.
The book was about Pearl Harbor, but I don't remember whether those words were on the cover. What was so memorable (and the reason I want to find it again) was the stupid intro, something like
It was a day like any other. Fathers getting ready for work; children getting ready for school.
I tried parts of those sentences in the Google Books exact phrase, but no hits. I must be remembering some of the words wrong.
Catija found something similar (and equal in the author's apparent ignorance of which weekday), but I don't think it was the same book.
Interestingly, Google has apparently not scanned the book Catija found. Searching "people at Pearl Harbor were going about their morning" gets a not found, perhaps you want (this SE post).
