Six Word Sunday



In the tradition of Ernest Hemingway, who was once challenged to write a short story in six words.
His six-word story was:  "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."


Each week I will choose a theme. It is your mission, if you choose to accept it, to meet that challenge in six words, no more, no less.
If you like, you may illustrate with a photo, or not.
Punctuation will be your biggest ally.

If you decide to play, please link back to this post, and leave the link to your post in comments here.
If you don't want to create your own post, you can write your six-word story in my comments.




The Theme:
Ice cream

Bossy's greatest gift to dairy consumers.




Thank you for playing.

I have two offerings. The first is nonfiction, the second, poetry.

Alaskans eat their weight in Winter.

One bite -
troubles fade
into Childhood

Okay, my comment didn't show up, so I'm reposting it, and now it will probably be here twice. Ruth is having troubles with hers also.

Clever, clever writing, everyone! You do Papa Hemingway proud!

Here is Vanessa's post on her blog Worth the Wait:
