Can you sum up your life in six words?

6 Mar

Here’s a fun little exercise from the Webster Public Library. They’re hosting a six-word memoir contest for kids in grades 6-12.  You’ll want to visit the library’s Teen Lounge bulletin board for an entry form, then let your creativity flow.

For inspiration, you can check out some examples at Entries will be judged by library staff and will be selected the week of April 8 to win a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble.

The Facebook posting where I saw this noted that adults aren’t eligible to enter, but encouraged them to comment on the posting with a memoir of their own.

I decided to play along.  Here are a few I came up with for me:

Chiefs fan. Married Cheektowagan. Bills fan.

Parented three kids forever. Empty nesting!

Life’s an adventure; riding the wave.

How about you? Get creative and leave a comment with your own six-word memoir.
