I've been tagged: Six word memoir...

Fashionista in PDX tagged me with the 'Six Word Memoir!'

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”). "

So here's mine:

"Hi! I'm Roland. Emigrate here often?"

Now comes the tricky bit - tagging five friends to write their own Six Word Memoir.

Here are the rules:
  1. Write your own six word story.
  2. Post it on your blog (with picture.)
  3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post (that's me.)
  4. Tag at least five others (mention them in your post, with links to their blogs.)
  5. Don't forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
    Have fun!
So without further ado, I'm going to tag Scarlett, from I'm No Belle, Jodi from Faster, Pussycat... Type! Type!, Laura Parish (Laura, you need a cool name for your blog,) Jo from Jo's Haunted Eyeball and Kirsty from Words, Wine and Whatnot.

And, in the mean time, go and check out Fashionista's responses (and the rest of her blog) at Chronicles of a Fashionista in PDX.
