Okay, we’ve all heard of this, the shortest flash fiction out there.
It’s usually attributed to Hemingway, but according to Snopes, the attribution came from a 1959 play by John deGroot.
Anyway, without further ado:
For sale, baby shoes, never worn.
Tragic, but a full story nonetheless; it’s one with a ton of backstory that it isn’t hard to figure out, referring to a loss of a child.
