six word short story challenge

i scream, you scream

My blog friend Susan at Bear Swamp Reflections has started a weekly challenge. She calls it Six Word Sunday. It’s in the tradition of Ernest Hemingway, who was once challenged to write a short story in six words. His six-word story was: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

Each week Susan chooses a theme. This week’s theme is ice cream. Since I had just posted about homemade ice cream, I found this particularly fun.

Here’s my six word story for this week’s challenge:

Creamy treat: sweet retreat from heat

Do you like a word challenge? Come play along with me.

I love your six word story! It's perfect.

Fun game! I like your ice cream story.

I know it's too hot to think about it, but I love that you would test knit the dark, seedy & twisted hat! I'll be in touch soon.
