I was reading a New Yorker article from last month, about summing up your life in six words.
Hemingway famously was asked to write a six word story and:
"For sale: baby shoes, never worn." was the result.
The article suggests not thinking too hard, just rolling it out. And as a matter of fact, 'Smith' magazine has just published a book of six word memoirs, and is already collecting more submissions for another book! (hit that link, and yours could be added!)
I wrote mine, without thinking, and came up with:
"Pottery every day, wife all night."
