Economical storytelling, part 3?

So Clay has this thing going on over at his blog, Seven, that challenges readers (both of us) to engage in a little economical storytelling, a la Ernest Hemingway's "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

Go ahead. Try it. It's fun. It's like Twitter, only literary and less annoying.
