it's my birthday (or is it?)

To answer my own question, no, it's not my birthday. My actual birthday is in three days, on the 10th of May. But don't stop reading! I have a favour to ask of you. One could even say that I'm asking you for a birthday gift (keep on reading, I'm not a bastard, really!). 

For my birthday, I humbly request that you comment below a six word story, please. If you would be so kind.

The reason for this is because I want to make picture edits using those six word stories (credits to you, of course) and make sort of a gallery post. I've wanted to do this for a while but I couldn't find the time to fit it in. So I thought, why not abuse the power of birthdays and ask for a six word story? That's what I did.

It can be anything, but it has to be six. They don't even have to be good! I'd be really happy if you could submit them. :)

Thanks for listening, as always!

      Oh wow, this is excellent. My head's exploding with a plot, it's a story that goes off the page. Thank you!

  3. Ack, six word stories are so tricky. Here's one I wrote a while ago: Secondhand chute. Used once, never opened.

    Oh, and as tribute to Hemingway's "original" one, here's a shoes one: Cobbler dies. Ghosts don't need shoes. (Yeah, what am I even doing?)

  5. We had to write six word stories in the school creative writing group a while ago and here's one I wrote. It's not very good sorry :/
    "Blurry vision, from allergies, of course."

    1. What are you talking about, it's brilliant! :D is it just me or does this have a hidden message (I'm assuming that allergies are just an excuse but I could be wrong)? Thank you!

    1. Actually, does it still count because I used an apostrophe? If not, then "There is limited supply of memories"... I think that still sounds grammatically correct. ^^

    3. I'm sorry for the overboard amount of comments but I've come up with a better one that still sucks but its a little better! It's so unoriginal for ME as I always use it in my stories!

      'I finally chose. A stranger - myself....'
