If you're on Twitter, you may have noticed Kevin, @dogtrax, share his 25 word stories (#25wordstory). I find these stories fascinating. They provide just enough information to give you a taste of the story, and leave you with much to wonder. I thought I'd give a few a try.
I walk into the kitchen in my new white Keds now brown from the creek, I look away. She glances at my shoes --- then laughs.
We walk into our new home. The foyer takes my breath away. As I wander from room to room I can't believe we'll live here.
Driving onto campus a wave of freedom rises within me. Turning the corner, large buildings surround me. For the first time, I'm on my own.
For years she took care of our children while we were at school. She fed them, played with them, and loved them. A true blessing!
She sits down behind the wheel; hardly believing it is hers. She starts the engine, turns on the radio, and leaves in her first car.
As I hear his name called my heart swells with pride. He walks across the gym floor, shakes the veteran's hand, and accepts the award.
Where has the time gone I wonder as she buckles her seatbelt and pulls out of our drive. Her car packed with pieces of home.
A similar version is the six word story. These six word stories can be found at this hashtag, #6words. Kevin shared a Mozilla Thimble link which talks more about the origin of the six word memoir.
First day of spring break. Snow?
Up all night with sick daughter.
A cup of coffee fixes everything.
