    Describe Your Life In Six Words

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by mugen shiyo, Oct 3, 2011.

    If you can make a statement in six words that described your life, what would it be? For instance...

    I have lost and I have loved.

    If contractions are allowed:
    It's alright I suppose. Can't complain.

    If not:
    Could be better, could be worse.


    Also, ShadowReeves is right.


    Some attempt at humour:
    "Fine, the meaning of life is-"
    "She sells she shells- oh damn!"
    "It is better to have loved"
    "Good working, good cooking, good f___ing"

    @ Shadow Reeves, ooops, lol.

    Thank you for the edit kind Sir :rolleyes:

    @ Smythe, any six words will do...besides profanity :p

    And I like your second one. Seems to say more.


    Love to dream, fear to fly.

    Just one, a black labradoodle.

    Collectively, my family owns about six or seven.
    Why do you ask?

    @ Quezacotl, wow, I meant to ask topeka sal. Don't mind me. Evidently I must be drunk posting today.

    @ another wasted day, nice one, lol. sounds like me.

    @ Naiyn, hope everything turns out for the better. Sounds like something did not.

    Hee hee!

    Truth? None at the moment. :( But many in my life (the most was three at once, which doesn't sound like much but they were all huge and I lived in a tiny place. It was all dog, all the time! I could have knitted five more dogs with all the shedding fur!).

    But I was also using "too many dogs" as emblematic of excess, eccentricity, clutter, and love (among many other things no doubt). It was a kind of metaphor for my life.

    Particularly as she wrote so much about Turkey and loved it there, I guess I'm with Lady Mary Wortley Montagu's last words:
    "It has all been very interesting."

    So much that hasn't been done.

    I really can't think of a better way to say it now.
