Four Word Happy Stories

To be honest I wasn't really all that sure what to write about today. It's not like a lot has gone down. At least nothing that would make for an interesting blog post. As I pondered what to write about I continued to peruse the internet, hoping that a good idea would come my way. That is when I stumbled upon something that made me think "hey, I could exploit that!".

Some of the four word stories that people actually posted in response to the above image were pretty cool. It was on those weird corners of the internet so there were a surprisingly high number about Hitler but hey, who am I to judge? I just won't post those kind of ones. Instead I'll just post a couple of them that I thought were actually pretty good and had nothing to do with Hitler, sex, or any combination thereof.

"I finally found you"

"She loved me back."

"Someone, somehow, finally cares"

"It was a dream"

Okay so in the end there weren't that many SFW ones but I thought it was still an interesting concept. I took the concept and turned it into "They were finally free." A story that, much like "Baby shoes. For sale. Never worn", has some hidden things included. It could refer to someone being free from prison, being free from an abusive relationship, or even being free from a painful life. I suppose it depends on what you think of when you hear the words "finally free". Just as there are some people who don't get the hidden suggestion that the baby died before it could wear the shoes (some people think it just means that they got the wrong shoes), there are multiple sides to stories and everyone sees stories differently. What some people would class as a happy story other people would say is a sad story.

It all depends on your interpretation I guess.

I have no clue where I'm going with this and will now just shut up.

  3. It's interesting to take any sentence or phrase out of context and come up with a who other back story. I enjoy a bit of wordplay.
