Ploughing through a doorstop of a book could yield a certain sense of enjoyment. But the brevity of short stories are a delight. It’s like watching a 5 second sketch instead of a 2 hour play.
Came across this New York Times collection of Six-Word Love Stories. That’s right. Only six words. It doesn’t get any shorter than this.
Here’s a pick of some of the readers’ entries:
“ Mistook love for seizure at first.”
“ Met in leftist group; felt right.”
“Marry me?” “No.” Happy ever after.
“ Dog approves; maybe this guy’s good?”
