We're "it"...!

We've been Kate tagged!

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).

Here's mine...

"Young men, old wine; no regrets"

And here is Shamu's:

"She came, she snarked, she left..."

We tag Charlus, Thombeau, Tom & Lorenzo, Jen-Nay and Dorothy Snarker...

Here are the rules:
1) Write your own six word memoir.
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5) Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
6) Have fun.

I'm not bloggy, but I have friends that went to Smith.

Child prodigy; not sure what happened.
