Hemingway once wrote a story in just six words (For sale: baby shoes, never worn.) and is said to have called it his best work. Okay, so I’ve posted 140 character Twitter stories before, but 6-word-stories are about as short as you’ll get.

But hey, I like a challenge, so when Morgen Bailey asked for 6-word submissions, I gave it a go. Here are my two.

I mouthed, ‘Help!’ but Ben saw.

For Sale: House keys, owner’s photo.

You can read these, and others, over on Morgen’s web pages.
