Six-Word Memoirs

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer recently challenged its readers to write their life story in just six words. The results of this challenge are now online.

My favorite is by Cheryl Stumbo,
one of five women wounded in a July 2006 shooting at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle -- a shooting that claimed the life of annual-campaign director Pamela Waechter.
Her memoir:
Bullies keep trying; I thrive anyway.

I also liked Doug Bradeen's
Raised daughters. Still don't understand women.

John Imhoff's
Now playing. Held over. Ends soon.

and Anne Whitacre's
Great jobs; good dogs; mediocre men.

The masthead for this blog appears to have answered this challenge on its own, while my back was turned:
Shedding invisible light on medical imaging.

Six-word comments would be welcome.

Life is a bowl of cherries.

I would. I could. I will.
