Stories Told in One Sentence

It's amazing what you can do with one little sentence. Just a few little words can make you wonder what the heck happened, like this one:

"When I opened the door I noticed 2 things: one, someone had made cookies, and two, all the furniture was missing, in that order."

Some are very poignant, some are hysterical, and some are just plain weird. If you submit your own, be sure to let us know!

In August, 2008 I submitted:

In Target earlier today I learned there is really no good way to answer a 5-year-old asking you why you are looking at his mother's butt so much.
