My autobiography in six words.

There's this trend going around on Facebook and the blogosphere based on the Smith Magazine book on the NY times bestseller list, titled Not Quite What I Was Planning. The title is a six-word memoir. The book is full of more six-word memoirs, by famous and obscure writers.

So I thought I'd write my own six-word memoir. Ready? Here it is:

Knits Beautifully For Other Mothers' Babies.

Perhaps my six-word memoir is a bit more revealing than my customary style on this here normally obfuscatory blog. But what the heck, it'll be spring soon and I had a glass of wine tonight, I am feeling unusually transparent.

What is your six-word memoir?

I'm not sure if I want to keep my autobiography in six words as I've posted -- or if I want to change ONE vowel -- it's a little more widely accurate -- although my first posting is quite true too.

So here's the one with the vowel change:

Whether or not "lives" is more accurate, I like "loves" better--it sounds more exciting and dangerous. All autobiography is at its root fiction anyway.
