Okay...that's NOT original. 😆
Good one! It does tell a story in 6 words. Someone else's six words, but six words nonetheless!! Quotes can be good...

This could be a writing prompt. Nice. You have created images in my head with six words. Bravo!
Thanks! I love working with super short stories like this, I find it helps writers of all experience levels realize how little is truly necessary to make a good story :)
I agree, this can make for such an entertaining writing exercise!
