in 6 little words

Recently, I was asked to explain my life story in 6 words. Yes, just six little words. I looked this up, thinking there had to be a back story and sure enough, there is!

Apparently people have been writing six word memoirs for the last 5 to 10 years, and it has become quite popular. There are several published books on this topic. The original, however, goes back much further. The premiere 6 word memoir has been linked to none other than Ernest Hemingway's, whose six-word story read: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” He wrote his as a bet, but many others who have followed suit write theirs as a testament to their lives.

So after much thought, here is mine: "My scars make the best stories." That's all folks!
