Six words

I'm in a rut of ennui so I was thinking an exercise in six words might be entertaining. A while back, I stumbled across "Six Word Memoirs" which was a very nice collection of pithy almost-poetry almost-memoir by everyday folks - see http://www.smithmag.net/sixwords/

So, if you have six words about life here or, whatever, in whatever language you choose, share them It's fun, or maybe I'm just so bored that my idea of fun is a bit on the square side....

Re: Six words

Moderators, noticed there is another six word thread here from 2011. Perhaps you can merge my six word story thread with this one. Thanks
