    "For a start?"

    Hi



    This phrase "For a start", I wanted to know if this phrase exists? and if so, does it mean 'first of all'?



    For example, I want to demand a series of things from somebody and I want my tone to seem slightly demanding or sarcastic.

    Could I utter it like this? 'For a start, I want to know this and that and.........'
    does that make any sense?
