In Just Six Words

It is said that Ernest Hemingway was once asked if he could write a story in only six words. His completed story: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

A friend told me about a book she was reading titled, "Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure". Famous and ordinary people were asked to sum up their lives in just six words.

It sounded fun; I flipped through it and found some in just a few pages that stuck out in my mind:

"Where the hell are my keys?"

"Dead mother watching; don't do it."

And from Joan Rivers, something like: "Doctors lied. Sex not better post-hysterectomy."

So could you do it? Describe your life; write your memoirs using only six words?

Mine would change, I'm sure, depending on my mood. Today it would probably go like this:

I Came . . . I Saw . . . I Left . . .
