I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I just stumbled on to it and thought it would be lots of fun for us to try. Hopefully this takes off as some of the stories I have read are downright hilarious.

Legend has it Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in just six words. His response: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

The Rules:
Try to write a story in just six words.

This can be a story of your life so far. It can be a story inspired by something you saw on your commute today.

You can post as many six word stories as you'd like, but please do so in a separate post.


Begin....

Harlan Ellison, the science fiction author, used to sit in the window of the Santa Monica-based "Change of Hobbit" sci-fi bookstore, pounding away at a typewriter, working on a new novel. For his own amusement -- and massive ego -- he would often write short stories based on idea suggestions offered up by the clientele. One of his choices:

100-year-old corpse. Mummified. Pregnant.

I never read it, but it must have been . . . interesting.
