Boxes can hold wonderful surprises — even major awards 😉 — but they can also hold the bodies of our dear departed, or all our worldly goods.
Write a tiny little story in only six words (not counting the title), about boxes.
Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.
Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…
Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one here. Here is mine.
Are the cats alive or dead?
I will post a new Six Word Story Challenge every other week on Wednesday – so the next one will be on September 18. On alternating Wednesdays you can visit my dear Sister from overseas’ website Marion Driessen for her story challenges.

Boxes are great. There is that old saying about “Big things come in small boxes” How true!

Thank you, Crackerberries, for two 6-word stories in one! The one on your blog, and the quote here. 😀
