At long last I have interrupted my highly cerebral often classified meditations on subjects as vast and varied as Flatulence Magnetism, Sub-Aquatic Incontinence, and The Average Number Of Quarks Too Stubborn To Dance Upon The Head Of A Pin long enough to answer the challenge of one Jeffrey Ellis who’s dare to me was to sum up the whole of my existence in one Six Word Memoir.

Well, as anyone who has ever had their retinas imprinted by this publication can tell you, I am far too verbose to encapsulate my entire corporeal career in a half-dozen words. In fact, it often takes me three times that amount to even realize I have begun a sentence, much less decide what it is to be about.

But then there is the Ominous Comma, my beloved blog for which I am spokesman, legal counsel and Chief Exaggerative Officer, that I can describe six words:

Which I will deposit upon this screen immediately below this line:

As you can see, I have finished with one word to spare, and as I decide how to spend that literary surplus allow me to bestow this same honor upon those who truly deserve it. I hereby inflict this meme upon my dearest absentee blog mutineers, Don, Lobo, and Alex who probably deserve far worse. While I’m at it I will widen the noose to include femme fatales Leigh, Theresa, and Jami. Of course anyone else who cares to saddle themselves with this challenge may also do so without my direct supervision.

Rules, blah, blah, blah:

  1. Write your own six word memoir.
  2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
  3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post.
  4. Tag five more blogs with links.
  5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Get cracking boys and girls, there’s not a word to waste.
