Good Book, Think You'll Like It

While killing time at a bookstore, I picked up Not Quite What I Was Planning, a book of six-word memoirs, and couldn't put it down. Who knew that so much raw hope, joy, disappointment, and despair could be packed into six words?
Barrister, barrista. What's the diff, Mom? Abigail Moorhouse

My baby's name was Sydney James. Margot Bertoni

Mom blames musical theater. I disagree. Dan Sigale

Never lived up to my potential. Leslie Sterling

Share your own six-word memoir at SMITH Magazine. I have no idea why it is capitalized, but SMITH is dedicated to storytelling and what's not to like about that?

I leave you with:
Such small kitties. So much poop?

Flabby, pale, hairy. Hello bikini, Hawaii!
