Six-Word Memoirs 

The legend is that Hemingway was once challenged to write a short story in six words. He came up with this "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn".
Now there is a project called Six-Word Memoirs at SMITH Magazine which is publishing a book titled "Not Quite What I Was Planning" which challenges people to describe their lives in six words.
Some of their submissions so far: "Waiting for the drugs to work." "God called, you have 1 message." "Nothing but curveballs. Hit some too." "20's women, 30's career, 40's sleep."
So here's mine: "Husband and children bring unexpected happiness". Not exciting, but it's my own.
