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:

Babysitting grandkids makes me crave it.

Thank you for playing.

Thirty years since last they met.

You and silence, Cali Girl? :)

Much silence? I talk to myself.

"Silence: as rare as hen's teeth."

I had trouble figuring out if the apostrophe "s" would count as a word. If so, please omit the first "as".


I just thought of another one.

"Missed swamp reflections during Susie's silence."

Something I don't experience very often.

None to be had at Wrensong

Can be broken, but never heard

Susan said...

Thanks, db, I like that second one! :)

I don't think apostrophes count, so you're good.

Cindy, that's downright profound!

Thanks, everyone...great job!

Too much silence since she left...

What's this silence you speak of?
