Twitter Fiction

Can you write a story in 140 characters or less?  Introducing Twitter Fiction! 

Ernest Hemingway once wrote a story in six words.  The master of brevity, he jammed several emotions into 33 characters.

For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.
I'm no Hemingway (yet), but I can practice.  Here are samples of my first attempts.

Sam goes to the moon. He forgets his spacesuit. Mission Control is not happy.

An attempt at double entendre:
Sandra followed me home. I asked Mom, "Can I keep her?" She said, "Yes." Meow!

Plain ridiculous:
UFO landed on house. FBI rebuilt it and moved me out. I can't remember anything.

And finally, six movies rolled together like unused wrapping paper:
Anakin's mom died. He was mad. He had a son, and now he's glad.
