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 http://www.sixwordmemoirs.com. 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.
