Six word stories

"Well who has a story for the great Cheverus Tales challenge ?"

The silence was deafening.

"OK, moving swiftly on, let's look at these six word stories."

(You know the things, like Hemingway's "For sale, baby shoes, never used", which he apparently regarded as his finest work ever).

Well they were every well received, and people worked in pairs to produce their own six word stories.

Here's a couple I remember :

Autumn over, birds are heading south.

People don't know Hemingway, so I'm thinking of using part of "The old man and the sea" in a "choose the right preposition" exercise.
