A Story Told In Two Pictures...

My friend Steve e-mailed me a couple of pictures of him at a work outing he attended last week. For some reason, the photos made me think of a quote from Ernest Hemingway, of all things.

I was told that someone once asked Mr. Hemingway what was the shortest story he could write, or maybe it was the shortest story he ever heard. I'm a little fuzzy on the facts.

In either case, it was reported that he said these words which became the shortest story:

"For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn."

Personally, I love the story whether or not he even said it or wrote it or heard it. 

So, even though a picture is worth a thousand words, I give you the following story in two photos:

I didn't say it was a great story...


  1. I had to look twice - you always make me smile.

    1. Thanks so much Sally! Though subtle, I believe it worked! ;) Glad my little posts can make you smile.

  2. Wow, THAT one had a punch line! Too funny.

    1. Thanks Shauna--after I posted the pictures and presented my case for the short two-picture story, it was the only thing I could say. Glad you liked it!
