Addicted to 55 words!!

Some more 55-stuffs :)


Goodbye Home

Mother thinks I am growing too big for my house and I should leave home now.
I think its not fair!
I am pushed out of my home. I can't fight back the force.
Flashes of light. Ouch, it hurts!
I cry my lungs out.
Somebody looks at me and shouts "Its a baby boy!"

SMS Birthday

Beep Beep. 1 new SMS. "Honey, I am caught in something important here! I shall reach late from work. Can you please pick your birthday cake on your way back from office? And don't forget to call me when you blow the candles and cut cake. I will wish you over the phone. Love you!"

Ee 55 words kadhakal bhayankara sambavangal thanne. (Thatteettu vazhi nadakkaan paadilla, eeyide).

Actually ningal (athaayathu ee 55 words kadhayezhuthukaar) engane aanu ithra krithyamaayi ee 55 words-l kadha ezhuthunnathu?

Oru kadha ezhuthunnu, ennittu 55 words ozhike baakki ellaam delete cheythu kalayukayano? Adhyathe words ano avasaanathe words ano kalayunnathu? Atho random aayittaano?

Atho, ezhuthi thudangiyittu 55 words aakumbo full stop ittu nirthuka enna approach aano?

Hey Soo,

The 55 word thing is nice :)
Have you heard about the 6 words story ? It started with Ernest Hemmingway's 6 word short story : "For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn."
