For sale: baby shoes, never worn

The legend goes that Ernest Hemingway made a bet that he could write a story of six words that would make people cry:

For sale, baby shoes, never worn.

It’s amazing how much 6 words can tell.

War. Just cause? Or just ’cause? – Eric Gant*
“Congratulations! Boy or girl” “…I’m overweight…” – Jakub Kopec*
Family reunion; surrounded by relative strangers. – Shag*

Of course I had to try it myself. It’s not easy, but it is fun and kind of addictive 🙂 So I came up with two of my own and I’m pretty happy with it for a first try.

Bye Netherlands. Hello US. Life 2.0.
I love me. How about you?

What do you think? Or maybe you have a six word story of your own? I love to hear it!
