The shortest short story on record is attributed to Ernest Hemingway who wrote, For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.

Whether he actually wrote it or not makes no difference. It’s an entire story in a mere six, short words. Yet, it packs an emotional wallop that pierces the heart. Once read, its impact is never forgotten.
