My first, and probably only meme

I’ve been tagged by PDX Fashionista to do a Six-Word Memoir.

Quoted from Smith Magazine: "Six-Word Memoirs: The Legend"

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).

"I'm always scared. But I'm strong."

Here are the rules:

1) Write your own six word story.

2) Post it on your blog [and include a visual illustration if you'd like].

3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post [me!], and to the original post if possible [so we can track it as it travels].

4) Tag at least five others with links.

5) Don't forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.

6) Have fun!

For some reason I actually have done this meme. No idea why but now I am going to pass on the joy to five others. Phillygirl, The Blonde Bombshell, Happy Snapper, Kab and finally Sweets.

Just have to check though, is you're meme the heading of your post, or "I'm always scared. But I'm strong." ?

My standard answer to those who think it's an insult to call me a coconut.

Ladies and gentlemen, can we have a round of appluse please - she actually did a meme! I rate this is the best meme we've seen so far - short, sweet yet so deep. ;-)

The Divine Miss M said...

@sweets - it is hey? Thanks ;)

@Bridget - I love yours!!!!

@meghan - Cheers ma dears

@elise - I'd love to take credit for that but it was purely by accident. Works well though doesn't it?

@lopz - hahahahahhahahaahahhahahaa, I'm so cool ;) That is me, filled with hidden depths. Along with hidden shallows that resemble depths just to confuse you!
