SIX WORD MEMOIRS

As seen on gospelwriter’s blog:
http://turtlememoir.wordpress.com/2010/08/25/six-word-memoir/

1. Best advice
Hope is wasted, do it yourself.

2. Milestone birthday
Had a wedding, ignored the doubts.

3. Holiday traditions
Stepchildren will always cause a fight.

4. Memorable meal
It sure looked good, nobody ate.

5. Siblings
His wife thought I was strange.

6. Cheating death
But I’ll have a last cigarette.

7. Trip that changed life
I should have taken a plane.

8. What a child taught me
Tattoos are never a good idea.

8a. Most beautiful words of a child
Lie with me until I sleep.

9. Revenge is sweet
I saw on Facebook he’s bald.

10. Worst mistake
It’s just one cigarette, no habit.

Oh, and Diski discovered an ear muscle.

We’re hoping she finds the left-hand one soon.

  3. Here I am swooning over Diski when I ought to either be in bed so I don’t sleep through breakfast and lunch or be preparing some sumptuous surprise for Harv’s morning munchies.

    Diski – L E F T, right? Oh darn, there goes the right one.

  4. Laughed like CRAZY on 4,5,7 and 9!! Still laughing!!

  7. Hi Cindy,

    I’m a little delayed in leaving you a comment, but I still wanted to invite you to submit your memoirs to SMITH Magazine, the creators of the six-word memoir project. Submit to sixwordmemoirs.com and you’ll join the other writers submitting hundreds of memoirs each day and have a chance to be published in one of our books!

    I like your revenge six-word memoir, particularly because I had a similar experience just the other day. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Alyssa, SMITH intern
