Hemingway wrote a classic 6-word story, supposedly on a bet: “For sale: baby shoes, never used.” (In my book, just one supershort story tops that: Julius Caesar’s classic “Veni, vidi, vici.”)
Flickr’s Caterina Fake sent out a call for new 6-word stories. What fun! I threw these into the mix:
- This Kool Aid tastes like cyanide.
- America goes the way of Rome.
- Sting ray fells hunter of crocs.
- I’m sorry, that lump is cancer.
- Boy meets girl. Girl sautees boy.
