Story in six words

Quote  |  Reply
Hopefully this game isn't a repeat, I tried looking for it in the search engine, but I came up with nothing.

Can you tell a complete story in just six words?  Hemingway wrote a very haunting story in just six words, it's rumored that he thought it was his best prose ever.

"For sale: baby shoes, never used"

does anyone have a better six word story (I'm kind of having a hard time coming up with one...but it's late and my brain isn't working haha)?

The door dilated.  Zorg slithered in.
