Six Word Memoirs - Let's play too!

This morning Adam Spencer (ABC 702) interviewed Rachel Fershleiser, co-author of a new book, "Six Word Memoirs: Not Quite What I Was Planning" . People were asked to write 6 words encapsulating their life, and the contributions sound an intriguing pot pourri of funny, incisive, wry, and just plain heartbreaking commentaries on what life has served up to them.

The idea was triggered by the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were—
For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.

Apparently bloggers have been playing this word game for months, but if, like me, you've only just got wind of it, why don't we play too? Please leave your contribution in the comments.

I'm sure I can come up with something better, given time and a second cup of coffee, (and I'll keep you posted if I do) but here's the first that came to mind -

Blessed life, good health - no wealth.
