6 word memoirs

We did a lot of these in enlgish class last year, and I thought they were pretty cool. Yup, 6 word memoirs. If you've never heard of them or don't know what they are, it was basically started by SMITH Magazine, and it's kind of a platform for a story, summed up in 6 words. If that makes any sense? Here are some that kind of sum up my life, or start a story:

"Wow, that was a close one"
"My secrets are not secrets anymore"
"Totally innocent, till she met him"
"'What were you thinking?' I wasn't"
"Credit card bill never goes away"
"Shit, what do I do now?"
"They think I can't hear them"
"We got along from the beginning"

And just because I like having pictures in my posts:

And the message on the image just happens to be six words :)

So, use this post as a tag kinda. Either comment or do your own blog post of your six word memoir or memoirs :) I love reading other people's.
