short? sweet? to the point? ha!

Prompted by boredom, inspired by books,
my coworkers and I wrote biographies
limited to six words (What? Six?!)
last night and it raised thoughts:
"I've got no ideas. I'll share."
Thinking "Hey! I'll then ask others!"
I discovered there's no original ideas.
This one rolls through the blogosphere
as a meme at this moment.

"Drats! Why am I always behind?
I've got nothing else to write!
This was supposed to be mine!"
Resigned to being one step behind,
I decided "Whatever. Seriously. No ideas."

The following words are my life story,
reigned at six words, no more:

"Wordy girl wondering if anyone hears."
"Rock star touring in a minivan."
"Developed early, the rack has dominated."
"Fueled by lust, driven by reality."
"Play one in real life? Ha!"
"Some days dictated by good hair."
"Waiting for someone to yell, 'Psych!'"
"Reigning slug bug champion of I-80."
"Never seen 'Die Hard'. Husband dismayed."
"She is supremely kick ass! Yeah!"
"Double Ds reign, bras and Duran."

So there you go, my story.
The intent I had was noble.
The plan? Shortest post ever!
But note that very first biography.
It's virtually impossible. I am verbose!

Now the challenge rests with you.
Can you sum up your life?
Tell your story of lust in brief?
Share yours with me in comments.

Here's to you surviving spring break and the loaner dog!

FTN - Better than fame built on boobs.

Des - Well done!

Michael - Also well done!

Sailor - Some very interesting things to ponder here...

Stacie - Some days I count to ten!

XI - Too lazy? I hardly think so!

Bunny - Ha! I love that a naked toddler controls your universe. My kids, clothed and loud, rock around in mine!

I love this but I will have to think about it. By the way, I have missed you. Life is not fun busy right now. Although, you keep talking about your DD's and how they dominate, I will say, "screw the shower, I need to see DKG!"
