Six Word Short Stories

Summary: Write a complete story using only six words.

How to enter: Please post your entry in this topic. You may only enter one story, but you may change your entry as many times as you want before the 24 hour window closes. Please only post one time.

Description: Six word short stories are exactly as they sound. You may punctuate the story however you need to in order to get the point across, but the story must have exactly six words. Here are some examples from the internet (if your entry comes from the internet you'll be disqualified):

- Bang postponed. Not Big enough. Reboot. - David Brin
- Painfully, he changed "is" to "was". - Icantusemyimgurname
- BREAKING: Simulated beings realize they're simulated. - The_Psuedonymouse
- Sorry soldier, shoes sold in pairs. - Independent

You may write about whatever you want, but please do not include profanity or mature or violent themes. I like many things, especially feeling feelings.

Good luck!
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
