Below are a second installment of six word stories compiled by Dave Eggers in his 2007 book, The Best American Non-Required Reading. The most famous six word story was written by Ernest Hemingway: For sale: baby shoes, never used.
Young, skinny, ridiculed. Old, skinny, envied.
Lucky in love, unlucky in metabolism.
Hiding in apartment knitting against depression.
Near-death experiences are my forte.
Never really finished anything, except cake.
My ancestors were accented cow herders.
I managed not to destroy anything.
