Six words

February 22nd, 2008

There’s an interesting book where famous and not-so-famous writers sum up their lives in just six words.

A few examples:

“Well, generic viagra stuff I thought it was funny.” Stephen Colbert

Revenge is living well without you.” Joyce Carol Oates

“Born bald. Grew hair. Bald again.” A.J. Jacobs

My six words?

“I thought it would be different.”
