Six Word Memoir




On NPR yesterday, I listened to a story about a six word memoir contest that is going on right now. Some of the ones mentioned on the radio were:


  • Fat fired lawyer loves three-legged cat.
  • Big hair, big heart, big hurry.
  • Never should have bought that ring.

So of course, Mike and I had to come up with some of our own memoirs. He came up with a fantastic one for me:

"Three degrees, one baby, still unsatisfied."

Perfect!

I also toyed around with something like this, 'Mormon feminist loves husband, hates patriarchy.'

The possibilities are endless...

Here's my cheater bio~
Two kids, two cats, two thousand books.

Somehow I'll have to come up with one that includes my spouse, too.

Caroline, I thought of another one for you: "Married awesome guy. What else matters?"

Jana, you've got to keep it to six words!

Can a number count as a word, as in "2 kids, 2 cats, 2000 books"? That is six words.....

Mine - number included - would probably be "23, pretending to be an adult." That pretty much sums up my life most of the time!

Caroline, can't you amaze us with your crazy Latin skills? Caesar's six-word "I came, I saw, I conquered" is only three in his native tongue.

I'm tempted to swap out the age and use journeygal's... :P
