6 word memoir

I was tagged by the wonderful Trish and the lovely Chartroose for this meme (this is my first time EVER being tagged for something!  and by two excellent people!  I feel so honored :)), and the rules are as follows:

As I read yet another book review of a memoir this weekend, my husband told me that I should write one. I said that my story would be much too short and rather boring so when I ran across the following book I decided it was just my speed. A six word memoir! Written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Expecting: Six Word Memoirs by Famous and Obscure is a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were- For Sale: baby shoes, never worn. There’s a video on Amazon with examples from the book, it sounds like a fun read! I’d like to start a six word memoir meme and here are the rules:

1. Write your own six word memoir

2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like

3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere

4 .Tag five more blogs with links

5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

So as happy as I am to be tagged for something (this means actual human beings are reading my blog… and coming back to read it more than once… seriously guys this is a big deal for me), I am SOO not good at stuff like this.  So after much thought, I finally came up with:

Life is family, books, and love.

Thanks again ladies for tagging me, I really appreciate it.  Since I’m still relatively unknown in the blog world I think I’ll spare myself the agony of tagging people who don’t even read my blog, and say instead if you feel like doing this meme and you read it here please feel free to let me know so I can read your 6 word memoir!

  1. As hard as it might have been, that is excellent!

    I thought it was funny that it was your first time getting tagged and you got tagged twice for the same meme. 🙂

  2. I’m an actual human being and read your blog. 🙂 I like your memoir! Mine was pretty dumb, but I also did six word reviews and those worked much better. 😀
