6 word meme

I’ve been tagged by bangers and mash to do a Six-Word Memoir... there was another blogger who tagged me too... but for the life of me i can't remember who, please forgive me for not mentioning you ;(

Quoted from Smith Magazine: "Six-Word Memoirs: The Legend"

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words.

His response?

“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet

“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”
and poignant “I still make coffee for two”
to the inspirational “Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”
and hilarious “I like big butts, can’t lie”

no fear i won't tag anybody... ok i'll hint who i want to do this meme... jackson and... cath... but hey no pressure ;)

my try...

um....what is biltong?

sweets said...

michelle: haha that's a good one :) ok biltong can be compared with beef jerky i think, although bilting is made from thick pieces of meat, i prefer with fat, dried with spices, really yummy and no rugby game is complete without it....

go see
