Default 6 Word Short Short Stories

In this thread, we will share our 6-word short short stories. Hemingway participated in one such "contest" years ago (Wired magazine also hosted this challenge), and this was his story: "For sale: Baby shoes, never worn." Reading those words as a story, you can see why it's very interesting

They're incredibly hard to write, and are an ultimate test of terse storytelling and condensing your ideas into something extremely small. In my opinion, the best 6-word short short stories are the kind that get the reader asking questions. Looking back at Hemingway's example, there are so many interesting scenarios that could fit the bill, and stories that get your imagination racing through the possibilities make for a very enjoyable read.


Anyways, here is mine:
"I still cook dinner for two."

Just a followup: They don't have to be confined to any one sort of essay. They can be as crazy or as serious as you'd like them to be:

"Nuclear meltdown: Time to make s'mores."
