To Make a Long Story Short ( or ) Long Story Short :
The traditional expression “to make (or cut) a long story short" is now commonly abbreviated by omitting the first phrase:
“Long story short, I missed my plane."
Although there’s a certain appeal to the notion of abbreviating an expression about abbreviation, the shorter form sounds odd to people not used to it.
