    I saw a pretty interesting writing prompt on Facebook this morning:

    "Write the Saddest Story Ever Using only Four Words!"

    We came up with some pretty interesting ones...

    • Ex is still stalking
    • My iPhone is cracked
    • I have no food
    • Another Adam Sandler movie
    • Princess Fiona divorces Shrek
    • The bar is closed

    What are the saddest 4 letter stories you can come up with?

    I swear... It's a legitimate writing prompt :p

    The first two are more scary than sad.
