Can You Say it in Exactly Six Words?

So, in keeping with the theme of the previous post, here's another book on love -- and heartbreak -- that would make a great Valentine's gift: Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak by Writers Famous & Obscure, edited by SMITH Magazine, is a collection of pithy, sweet, clever, simple six-word sagas exploring the complexities of the human heart. Some samples: "I trusted her forever. Good choice." "Married by Elvis, divorced by Friday." "My mother warned me about you." "Never again. Maybe once. Yes, ok." "Somehow I even love his snoring." "It's worth it, despite your mother." "Lost a lover; gained a lawyer." "Will always follow you. On Twitter." This haiku for the new age is sure to entertain. Great for reading aloud at parties. Can you come up with your own? These are the same people who brought us Not Quite What I was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure.
