six word memoir

I found this over at Jo's. She had tagged me for the following challenge....

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).
The rules of the meme are:
Write your own six word memoir.
Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
Tag at least five more blogs with links.
Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
Have fun!

Jo, I'm sorry it took me so long to get this done. Now, I'm suppose to pass it along to at least 5 bloggers. But, instead I'm going to leave it open to whoever wants to do it. So, if you decide to do this let me know for I can check yours out.

Have a Wonderful Day!

I love your six words. I won't grab it because you took my six words;-). Okay not really, but I agree with you.
