The Shortest Sad Story Ever Written

The Shortest Sad Story Ever Written

A Story by Mr. Box
"

The shortest sad story written by famous author, Ernest Hemingway. I believe some of you have seen it before, and I want to share it here for fellow writers who also admire him.

"
One day, the famous writer and journalist, was having lunch with his friends. He then bet the entire table 10 dollars for each person that he could write a sad story that consisted only of six words. His friends thought that he was just bluffing, and they immediately took out 10 dollars from their pockets. Hemingway then took a piece of napkin and wrote: 

"For Sale:
Baby Shoes, Never Worn"

And he won!

Nice one. The only criticism I can think of in order to improve this nice writing is that "he did not write six words in the end." I mean, exactly six words would have been nice. Rest, it is superb.
