Belated Saturday Centus: Like You Didn't See This One Coming

 

Dear Friends, 
I'm sorry for my absence these past few days. I don't have a fun excuse, but I'm grateful to have a job. That is, I've been putting in a lot of extra hours. So, with Tuesday upon us, I now present you with my Saturday Centus. 

This exercise is the brainchild of Jenny Matlock. Please check out other contributions here. We're typically allowed 100 words to play with. But this week, we can only use SIX words to write an autobiography or, in Jenny's terms, an autobriefagraphical. 

How would you describe yourself/your life in only six words? Feel free to leave your responses in the comments section. Mine's below, though I sorta cheated with a seven word title.

Like You Didn't See This One Coming

My life in six words: chocolate.

  1. You cheated with one extra word, how dare you do such a thing..lol
    Mine would have to be:

  2. Pat,

    One extra? You've had me re-counting 6 times. But I still count 6 (without the title). Are you talking about the colon?

    Great response and very appropriate.

  3. We must be twins! LOL! Chocolate is my life too! ;)

    Thanks for coming by my blog earlier and saying hello :)

  4. LOL! I have got to stop reading your blog late at night. Now I want chocolate and there's not even a Hersey's kiss in the house! Those darn kids! yep...I'm blaming them.
    Blessings, Joanne

  5. Robyn....lead me not to temptation, hand it over to me ;P
    My story: Giggling teen, get 'grown up' shots.

  6. Let's just call your seven word title a forward to the story. Don't all great autobiographies have a forward or prologue?

    ReplyDelete
  7. LMAO! I absolutely agree. Chocolate is Life. ;)

  8. You're cheating because the first five words are just repeating the question. It's an old trick used by coy girls to avoid giving away too much information about themselves.

  9. I'd be lying if I told you I saw it coming. I try not to peg people into classifications, but you and the chocolates are inseperable!

  10. I have 6 words...

    My life is full of misadventures.

  11. Melody, thanks. Good chocolate to us.

    Joanne, I'm sorry. Psst, get rid of the kids, not the chocolate.

    Rek, sorry, it's all gone. I like your 6.

    Ruth, I like your thinking. Now I just need a five-word post-script. Right?

    Melissa, thanks. Smiles.

    GB, of course, it's only the ape kingdom that's onto us with this one.

    Shockgrubz, glad you didn't see it coming.

    Baygirl, I like that and can relate.

  13. Yeah Robyn I have to admit that I did see this one coming about a mile off but it was still good to see. Good on you for taking extra hours too, the more the better.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Robyn, you're so sweet to share with us! Now pass that box of chocolates. You could have paraphrased Forrest's mother and said, "Life is a box of chocolates!"

  15. I've been known to eat baking chocolate out of desperation. Now I've got freshly delivered Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies...

  16. Your "autobriefagraphical" really has bite! I'm going to keep it close to me at all times! Julie

    ReplyDelete
  17. I didn't know exactly what words you would use, but I knew the subject matter!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd like to talk about the Colon. Specifically the colon cleanse. If we do away with colon's we could read much faster! And maybe we could start a petition to get rid of periods too--many many women would like that!

    Love ya and I see ya laughing!

  19. John, yes, you see me laughing! And I realized today that I just put a crapload (no pun intended) of colons in my last non-blog writing piece. Let's drop the period first, then we'll rally around the colon cleanse. LYMI and thanks for the laughs!

    Pat, yeah, I wear my chocolate on my sleeve. (I'm a messy eater.)

    Julie, cute response. Thanks.

    Li, thin mints are delicious. I just wish they weren't so thin and addicting.

    Judie, I'm forwarding the box to you. But I see that it's empty. How'd that happen? It must've been Forrest.

    YM, LOL. You're a smart one. And thanks. Yes, extra hours are always good when the paycheck comes in.

    Beth, I like it. You have me singing. I didn't know that was Paul Simon. It's a classic.

  20. How can you go wrong with chocolate?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think yours should be "just want to be a writer." No?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Max, true, it's tough to go wrong with chocolate.

    Sarah, yes. Very good. It's easier and more fun to focus on the chocolate, though I can't write without it. I guess they're mutually exclusive.

  23. Chocolate is definitely worth 6 words! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Heehehehe girl, this was funny!!!

    Ya gotta give it to that chocolate don't ya?

    God bless and have an amazin' day sweetie!!! :o)

  25. Life in six words? (yours is awesome!)

    "Struggling to balance mommyhood and writing."


    I sure wish I could replace those two empty words (to, and) with two more important things. Like chocolate!

    For a surprise (period)

    Love ya mean it!
