Six word story

Got this from a friend… and thought it was definitely worth sharing.

Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest authors of American literature, was sitting in his favorite pub with several author friends. He offered them a bet, saying he could write a story in six words that had a beginning, middle, end and an emotional impact.

Skeptical but curious, his friends each laid fifty dollars on the table.

Hemingway scribbled for a few moments on a table napkin, then passed it around; one by one each of his friends grew silent.

“For Sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.”

lots to take from that…
Might share my thoughts later.
