Six? Seriously?

New Kid and Brigindo both tagged me for this six word memoir meme. As one of the more wordy people in our little community, I was flattered but immediately anxious about what I could possibly write.

My first attempt? "I can’t. Please reference my blog." Defeatist, not at all confident and pointing people to far more knowledge about me than they seek. Not bad.

Then I had, "I’m too wordy! This is hard." Critical of myself and clear about the effort required. This also sounds like me.

Friend suggested, "Too verbose for merely six words."

If it were specific to today, I'd go with something like, "Parents, party, shopping, sleepless. Very tired."

Oh, and I always forget to post the rules - might as well try that. And why not add my own responses to the instructions while I'm at it.

1. Write your own six word memoir

No. It's too difficult a task.

2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like

Like a blank space? Or a frowny face?

3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere

I did link to the people who tagged me. I like them both very much.

4. Tag five more blogs with links

Why? Should the failure not stop with me?

5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play

You're all cordially invited to play. If you comment to inform me, I'll happily add a link for you and would love to read what you write. As for me?

I can't do it. I'm sorry.

6 words is hard. I thought I might try to do it but I struggle to think up 6 words. And I can't find a picture that would sum up my pitiful 6 words.

Sorry it was so much pressure! Your posts are always so beautifully written, I thought it would be fun to see what you came up with. It was not meant to be a burden!

(I sometimes think "No. It's too difficult a task" would fit me REALLY well!)
