Six Word Memoirs

See Six-Word Memoirs at SMITH Magazine for a full understanding. There's also a nice piece on NPR.

The story is, Hemingway was asked to write a complete story in six words and he is reputed to have said "Baby shoes for sale, never worn." Pretty potent, if you ask me.

So why don't we take a stab at this, with perhaps a little Airstream flavor (no required, but now and then it would be nice). I'll start:

Fighter Pilot dumps Corvette for Airstreams.
