Post your six word memoir

Six word stories are writing challenges meant to improve creative expression. These are succinct, yet brilliant and imaginative works that are no more, no less than six words long.

It is said that Hemingway was challenged to write a story in six words and came up with his famous work: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
Just goes to show how powerful brevity is.

Other examples of compelling six word stories, some of them memoirs, other themed:

The smallest coffins are the heaviest.

It cost too much, staying human.

Found true love. Married someone else.

One cell survived. Spread. Not again.

Born a twin: graduated only child.

Bought roses home. Key didn't fit.

Introduced myself to mother again today.

Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends.

Re: Post your six word memoir

Hello Ace,

Thank you for your emails and your (useful?) post. I did not mean to upset anyone by posting a lighthearted writing prompt in the off topic section forum.
You also deleted my ad meant to help my cleaning lady find job opportunities. Your reactions today seem bit harsh. Your argumentation was that it is forbidden to help a friend. As I mentioned, she is not my friend. She is a person I warm heartedly recommend and she has no internet access or a laptop. Moderators should make an effort to act like decent human beings, and try not to develop a grudge against members.

Yes, of course. You can't choose what sort of replies you'll get though.
