“Thinking Air Force. Or maybe dancer.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week

The heat broke on the east, as did the spirit of at least one flight attendant, but your Six-Word Memoirs could not be stopped. Here are six six-worders we love from the week ending August 13. Click on each author’s name to check out more memoirs.

Most Pragmatic: “Dreamed of bohemia. Changed my mind.” —TheQuietOne
Most Determined: “Goal: Kiss him before he leaves.” —Invisiblegirl, from SMITHTeens
Most Versatile: “Thinking Air Force. Or maybe dancer.” —Emonerd_951
Most Creative Biblical Interpretation: “Love thy neighbor, through parted curtains.” —Renegade
Best Imagery: “Dining solo, but not without candlelight.” —Geo
Most Universal: “Everyone has scars. Everyone has stories.” —HearUsNow, from our new six-word project, Six Words on Pain & Hope, with the nonprofit, To Write Love on Her Arms.
