6-Word Stories

I think this meme originated from Nancy at, " Life Among The Never-Winged" and I also saw it at Maggie's, "Mind Moss".


Here are a few. Maybe they're supposed to stand alone and not connect to each other....??



1. Who knew aged carbon was valuable?
2. Diamonds are a girl's best friend.
3. But they can be worst enemies.

4. Out of the shadows comes light.

5. Easter chocolate is deadly for diabetics!
(But sometimes I can't resist it!)

6. Mist rises and clears up "misteries".

7. I call my protruding belly, "Menopot"!

8. Today, my husband "skieth" his LAST!
(Quietly, I shout, "It's about time!")

9. Think lines 5 and 7 connect?!

10. My life is a long mini-series.

11. Discard all fools' gold you see.
(All that glitters is not gold
Why not save yourself the bother?)

12. Things aren't always what we see....
13. Sometimes we need a new prescription.

14. Words take on their own life.
(In my mind they are published!)

15. How these memes do go on!

"Menopot"--hahahahaha.

Your poor husband and the end of his ski season. I could still milk our trails for one or two more outings...tell him to come to Duluth.

Yay! Thanks for doing this. I like #6. :-)

Each 6-word story is meant to stand on its own. But I've found a few people building one off another. I think it's pretty fun.

Short and sweet, but not saccharin.

Colleen: And I thank you for that!

Jocelyn: Just wait till you get there! (I'm not telling him about skiing 'cause he'l be packing in a minute!)

Steve: NO, you don't- I've seen it!

Gr: Okay, you get to tell him that!! Thanks!

Twilite: May be clever but certainly not fun!!

Nancy: Yeah, it was fun! I guess you can tailor some memes to do what you want. I liked # 6 best, too.

Maggie: You could go on and on! I wish I could give people the right corrective lenses sometimes!!

Richard: Yes, but never Sweet 'n Lowe!
