Short Stories

I spend far too much time on the web and keep seeing blogs, Twitter, NPR, middle school English classes probably; everywhere I look there are four to six word stories.  They are amazing! Brevity of language used to illicit strong emotion and create vivid imagery.  Quite a skill and the masters of the medium are artists.

I am not.  Here now, my take on the six word story.
