Sunday Story-day

K
:
Our buddy Luxor is having a contest! You have to write a full story with only 6 words . . . it was furry challenging, but here's my story:

Fev-ver butt mousies . . . Life is good!
by Kimo

S: Check out my story - pretty good huh?

Nosey. Nippy. Nappy. Life is good!
by Sabi

K: Ernest Hemingway was once prodded to compose a complete story in six words. His answer, personally felt to be his best prose ever, was "For sale: baby shoes, never used." Some people say it was to settle a bar bet. Others say it was a personal challenge directed at other famous authors. By the way, Mr. Hemingway really liked cats and always had a bunch in his family!

S: You can always leave us a comment about our stories on this bloggie . . . or you can leave comments on the contest site. Go there anyways to read all the other great stories! Mr. Fuddy-Duddy (Luxor's Daddy) will be judging the contest.

My aim is to put down on paper
what I see and what I feel
in the best and simplest way.
Ernest Hemingway

K: Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for another installation of Meezer Monday!

I'm duly impressed with your stories!

Have you heard about the fuss going on in Florida about the cats at the Hemingway house?

Love,

Actually, the contest will be judged by the Fuddy Duddy Food Dude of 2006 so there isn't really any voting, but comments are certainly welcome - thanks for entering, Kimo & Sabi!
