I was wondering in what situation that is most appropriate to use or begin " One day,....."

Is it right to begin like this as in:
One day, when I was walking home from school, I passed by a shop named Henrys Shop.
Please correct the sentence if there's any mistakes too. Many thanks, everyone! ^o^
It does sound a tad comical - It's been used many times, and should probably be avoided as an opener (eg. To begin a sentence or story)

One day can refer to thing in the past or future whereas someday only for the future Emotion: stick out tongue
