Six-Word Memoirs

Six-Word Memoirs: "Not Quite What I Was Planning . . ."

Folks were challenged to write a story in exactly six words. The response was overwhelming — 11,000 submissions later! — and a book of the entries is now sold in stores. Happy, sad, funny, mundane, regretful, grumpy, sarcastic, and blunt — the range of emotion in these quick tales is all over the map. I've got my contribution: "Nachos and cat vids: Any questions?" Tell me your six-word story in the comments.
