Valentines in Six Words

The Washington Post did a cute Valentine's Day feature yesterday inspired by Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs By Famous and Obscure Writers. The paper challenged readers to submit six-word descriptions of their love lives.

There are so many good ones. Here are some of my favorites:

  • 30th Reunion Northwestern HS 1979
  • Kissed in 2008; Married in 2009!
  • Too much, too soon, too bad.
  • E-Harmony told us both: "No matches".
  • Difficult convincing friends I'm happy single.
  • Spied on Metro, Now dream fodder. 
  • I love him. He loves her.
  • Ex called to say he's engaged. 
  • Married a cook; dieting now. 
  • Miss hon, my love. Stupid cancer.

Check them all out.

    I loved this article and am glad to see that others did, too. It’s amazing what messages can be conveyed in just six words.
