I found this interesting web site that I heard about on NPR. Basically, the challenge is to write your life memoir with 6 words. There are a lot of funny ones… but the most interesting are the sad ones. http://www.smithmag.net/sixwords/
Here’s a sampling:
Not quite what I was planning.
After Harvard, had baby with crackhead
Found true love. Married someone else.
Baby Shoes for sale, never worn.
So I thought I’d work on my own memoir…
A few candidates. If you have some, feel free to comment.
Two Sons, Lovely Wife, snuggle nightly.
Fried Chicken – All I really wanted (I hope this isn’t the one that gets chosen for my headstone…)
Spent time on family, not memoir
