Six Word Memoir

Mel, a fellow Philly Mom Blogger, posted this meme and I'm going to give it a shot.

The meme originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith & Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. It’s a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were, “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.”

1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it to your blog including a visual illustration if you would like.
3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogsphere. Mel's link is:
4. Tag 5 more blogs with links
5. Don’t forget to leave a comment in the tagged blogs with an invitation to play

So, here it is....drum roll please,
Can you babysit for me tonight?
my six word memoir...

Now, then, to tag five people.






Let me know if you play along by leaving me a comment so I can come read your six word memoir.
