STORIES WRITTEN USING ONLY SIX WORDS

The wordPress Topic #227 (August 22) asked What story can you write in six words?

I described my life in two stories:

  • My mess I guess is jest.
  • Book not finished: ghost writer wanted.

Then I decided to have fun, so wrote four more stories that are not about my life, but which incorporate some of the longest words in the English language (the explanation is in parentheses following each story):

  • Ingesting aopadotenachoselachogaleokranioleipsanodrinhipotrimmatosilphioparaomelitok-atakechymenokichlepikossyphophattoperisteralektrionoptekephalliokigklopeleiolagoi-osiraiovaphetraganopterygon could lead to hepaticocholangiocholecystentersotomy.  (Eating a seventeen ingredient Greek dish could lead to gall bladder surgery)
  •  The asseocarnisanguineoviscericartilaginonervomedullary is a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious miracle. (the structure of the human body is a wonderful miracle.
  • Church opposition is antidisestablishmentarianism or pseudoantidisestablishmentarianism. (Opposition to the disestablishment of the Church of England can be true or false).
  • Inhaling volcanic silica caused his pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. (a lung disease)

Then I thought about telling a story using some of the shortest English words:

  • I am id; you are ego.
  • It’s an ad for ae ai. (It’s an ad for one three toed sloth.)
