“Always Say Yes to Homemade Brownies!” The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week

Best Six (9-27-10-3-01-01-01

How many childhood reflections remain with us throughout life? This week, our Sixers peered through a youthful prism. Some reminisced about school days (“Kindergarten: scaredy-cat. High school: Top dog.”) and others offered timeless advice (“Always say yes to homemade brownies!”). Sometimes it takes a brave, grown-up perspective to reveal our youthful inclinations (“Subconsciously still afraid of the dark.”). This week’s Sixes remind us that, often, the most enduring lessons are those learned early. —Caroline Goldstein
