The Minimalist Memoir

I’ve always been intrigued by Hemingway’s shortest essay. In only 6 words he captured a deep and meaningful story.

If you haven’t read it, it goes like this: “For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn.”

So in walks Oprah. She encouraged the readers of her magazine to come up with their story in 6 words. So I started thinking what would my story sound like:

Shoot! Where’s my phone? Found it!

or something like this:

The perfect man, dang, he’s married.

or maybe this:

Mood swings, cramps, bloating, dangit again.

If you had to describe your life in 6 words what would it be? Click an image below for inspiration:
