Baby Shoes by Hemingway

“For sale: baby shoes, never used.”

Perhaps written to settle a bar bet or perhaps written as a challenge, it is said that Ernest Hemingway wrote this ‘short short story’. Only 6 words long, the story has a beginning, a middle and an end. These are thought provoking 6 words forming a story-line. Perhaps, a woman’s life-long pain described in 6 words.
