This is sometimes used as a game, and I'm not sure if this will take off anyway but I thought I'd give it a go and see if anyone wants to join in. Basically you write a short short story on ReBoot using only 6 words. The original short short story writer was Ernest Hemingway whose colleagues bet he couldn't write a complete short story in just 6 words. His response was "For sale: baby shoes, never used."

The stories are not continuous, ie its not where I write 6 words like "Once upon a time in Mainframe" and then the next person continues, these are supposed to be complete stories. Well as complete as a short short story of only 6 words can be lol. My first example will be below and if I can come up with more I'll post more but I'd like to see everyone have a go. If you want further inspiration, head to Six Word Stories and check out their submissions.

Now without further ado....
