Six-Word Memoirs

See also

Some time ago, AARP Magazine had a short piece titled “Six-Word Memoirs.” Many people submitted theirs. LBL’s favorite was “Located my childhood sweetheart. Shouldn’t have.”

Here, then, are some six-word memoirs of LBL’s life:

A mistake, telling Steve Jacobs “No.”

Can I do eighth grade again?

Shouldn’t have bought the fake butt.

Ironed my hair, not my clothes.

Kindergarten boyfriend. Married the next one.

Big boobs. Small teeth. No butt.

Used to have all the answers.

Topographanosia. Google it. It’s my life.

Epitaph: I’m glad I left Philly.

LBL would LOVE to hear yours.
