RE: Tell me a short story!
For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn.
(Real short story written by Ernest Hemingway)

"Some prisoners spent more than ten years buried in solitary cells the size of coffins, hearing nothing but clanging bars or footsteps in the corridors. They survived because they could talk to each other by tapping on the wall. In that way, they told of dreams, memories, and fallings in and out of love; they discussed, embraced, and fought; they shared beliefs, beauties, doubts, guilts and those questions that have no answers.
When it is genuine, when it is born of the need to speak, no one can stop the human voice. When it is denied a mouth, it speaks with the hands, the eyes, the pores, or anything at all because every single one of us has something to say to the others, something that deserves to be celebrated or forgiven by others."-Eduardo Galeano

That's sad. Sad

Or maybe they were girls' baby shoes and the baby turned out to be a boy.

The end.

RE: Tell me a short story!
True story, which the baby shoes quote reminded me of. I have a long drive to work (up to an hour and a half) and occasionally I have to stop to use the lavatory along the way. I have 5 places along the way that I know I can use.

Now one of those places is a cemetery, as my daily commute takes me past the 6th largest cemetery in the world. There are a couple of places in there where I can go. That was where I felt the call of nature this morning while stuck in a traffic jam.

On the way back out I took a wrong turn and ended up having to turn around at the end of a road alongside what appeared to be some very recent sites - there were a lot of fresh flowers etc.

One of the gravestones had a silver balloon with a cartoon character's face on it, attached by a string to a gravestone. Still fully inflated and floating, so it was likely placed there yesterday.

That was enough for me. I cried a little bit then I got on with getting to work.
