According to legend Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? For sale: baby shoes, never worn. Smith magazine held a contest on the subject last year, and the response was overwhelming, ranging from the bittersweet (Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends) to the poignant (I still make coffee for two) to the inspirational (Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah) and hilarious (I like big butts, cant lie).

Here's mine: "This life, thankfully, still under construction."

Can you sum up your life in six words (or less)?
