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.

  1. Suddenly you’ve started me off trying to think of six word memoirs myself!!! Can’t think of anything else!!

    How about

    flat eared dog raises his game?

    Diski looks extremely cool:-)

    1. theonlycin says:

      1. cool, flop eared dog?

      2. theonlycin says:

        Indicator on, turn right.

  2. Lyndatjie says:

    I have verbal diarrhea, so this is one challenge I won’t be taking part in. Diski is positively gorgeous!!!

    1. theonlycin says:

      She’s proving to be an extremely clever little dog Lyndatjie, unfortuantely that’s exposing Lulubelle’s not-so-cleverness ;p

  3. Rosemary says:

    This is my best – Revenge is sweet : I saw on Facebook he’s bald. Not only that, she got fat ! Have a great day.

    1. theonlycin says:

      LOL, she got fat is a great one 🙂

  4. souldipper says:

    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.

    1. theonlycin says:

      She’s too funny, souldipper, she looks like a lopsided bat 😀

  5. thysleroux says:

    Such a dry witty comment…
    “Oh, and Diski discovered an ear muscle.

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

    1. theonlycin says:

      Poor thing, she doesn’t understand why we’re laughing at her 🙂

  6. Adeeyoyo says:

    I love big ears, but they can be a bit slower. I’m sure it will go up. He is beauuuutiful! You can see the intelligence in his eyes too!

      1. adeeyoyo says:

        Sorree Cindee! I know she’s a she, but I can’t seem to help referring to her as HE!

  7. Adeeyoyo says:

    … on dogs, lol!

  8. granny1947 says:

    Morning cindy…I feel the pain of the cigarettes!

    1. theonlycin says:

      We were both very silly.

  9. Kavita says:

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

    Good ones, Cin! This seems like a GREAT idea! I think I am gonna write this up myself… let’s see now…

    1. theonlycin says:

      Look forward to reading 🙂

  10. nzwakaduja says:

    This I’m definately gonna do.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Tell me when it’s posted?

  11. Smander says:

    Ohhh I miss my dog (he went to dog heaven). Diski is a cutey. I hear you with the cigarettes. I think I might give this a go…

    1. theonlycin says:

      Well, now yoou have that white cat of yours 🙂

  12. izziedarling says:

    Cin, Diski looks just like my Cooper! Ear and all – 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      Oh dear izzie, how old is Cooper? We’re hoping Diski grows into those ears, because at the moment it seems a high wind will make her take off into the sky!

      1. izziedarling says:

        He’s two and a halfish. He’s a JackRat – 90 percent Jack Russell, 10 percent Rat Terrier (sp) hence the ears. p.s. he doesn’t know he’s a dog so don’t tell. 🙂

      2. theonlycin says:

        My lips are sealed 🙂

      You’re welcome. Always a pleasure. And, if Rik (UW) is right, the tighter our web on the web, the more we benefit.

    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
