Me: Oh man. My friend Steph wrote another long facebook post. She is such a nice person, but she writes long posts and I always lose interest before the end.
SH: I write long posts.
Me: Yes. And they're boring. Your posts are way too long.
SH: It's hard to say anything in 140 characters.
Me: No it's not. Haven't you ever heard the short story, "For sale, baby shoes, never worn?" I've heard that Hemingway wrote it.
Me: Six words. An entire story. A sad story. The baby died.
SH: You don't know that.
Me: What do you mean I don't know that? That's the story!
SH: It could have been a baby born without feet.
Me: Yes, I hadn't considered that.
