I hope everyone who observes the holiday had a great Easter. I ate entirely too much but enjoyed a chance to spend with my extended family. When we got to my mom's she showed us a brand new Honda-CRV she just bought two weeks ago. I jokingly asked if she was going to let her granddaughter take it for a spin and she said, "Of course!." You can imagine Diana was both thrilled and nervous. I feared for the bank of mailboxes as she backed out of the driveway but once she got past that she did great. Upon her return she informed us it's much nicer to drive than my dented minivan with a transmission that's beginning to slip. Imagine that!
Hypersonic had a link to this article some time ago where some fellow has done a compilation of people summing up their lives in six words. He was inspired by Ernest Hemingway's 6 word story For sale: baby shoes, never used.
Then Citizen of the World tagged me with the idea as a meme.
I thought coming up with a complete story line in 55 words was a challenge. How do I sum up my entire life in 6 words?
Well, I have two alternatives here. I realize they sound a bit gloomy and I don't intend that. The first one is simply a statement of fact and is what has felt like the overarching theme from the day I was born.
Unending cycle of hellos and good-byes.
Here are some others I thought of too.
Daughter, sister, wife, mother. Seeking myself.
Running the show, no one realizes.
Mapped a route, detoured, enjoying ride.
Ok, so I cheated and put out too many words plus all sorts of explanation. When have you ever known me to follow all the rules of a meme?
How would YOU sum up your life in six words?
