6 word memoir

After hearing about this on the radio I finally picked up a copy to check it out. Smith Magazine held a contest to submit a 6 word memoir. There was such an overwhelming response they published the entries in a book called "Not Quite What I was Planning."

The official book description reads - "Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, Not Quite What I was Planning is a thousand glimpses of humanity - 6 words at a time."

Some of my favorites are:
"catholic school backfired. Sin is in!" - Nikki Beland
"Always working on the next chapter." - Milan Pham
"Followed white rabbit. Became black sheep." - Gabrielle Maconi
"Even the quietest sounds make noise." - Paul Boggan

What would yours be?
