Six-Word "Stories"

The book of Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Relationships is out, and has been excerpted in Reader's Digest. I rarely consider these six-word ditties to be stories, mind you, because my definition of "story" includes the notion of plot; that said, there are some good bits in there, and if you don't like one you have only wasted about a half of a second on it.

One of the stories is mine, or rather, is credited to my alter ego, Oliver House: "Marriage, children, empty nest: Now what?" (See? There's a tiny bit of plot there.) It's in the book and in the Reader's Digest excerpt, which is kinda cool.
