Sometimes 6 words are just enough

Hello, hello! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! This post takes me back to English Literature A level (which seems like it was centuries ago), when I first heard of Hemingway's six word story. How could you convey enough meaning to make up an entire story? I thought naively. The answer, my dear readers, isin what it is not said:

As you can understand, I was impressed. Evidently, other people were impressed as well. In fact, so impressed they created this website and added their own six word stories. Some of my favourites:

'Cat leaps from shadows. Floating feathers'
'Lazy optimist dies happily of starvation'
'Out, bitch!' Lonely. 'Come back love!'
'Lonely baby. No longer a twin.'
'Mistook grenade for cigarette lighter. Smoked'
'Chapter one: Coughin'. Chapter two: Coffin'

Do you have any of your own to add? Which ones do you like? :)
