Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, February 10, 2021

Nothing screams “meme” like the literary exercise of boiling your autobiography down to six little words.

You can add your super-succinct vitae over at Smith Magazine. However, considering they’ve already culled the most notable submissions — including celebrity contributions from Stephen Colbert, Harvey Pekar, Chuck Klosterman and others — into a book called “Not Quite What I Was Planning”, doing so now strikes me as anti-climactic.

So I’m going to script mine right here:

Here I am. Hard to believe.

It actually wasn’t as hard to craft as I thought it would be. Surprisingly multi-faceted for such an economical use of words.

Not that I’m trying to hijack Smith, but feel free to contribute your own personal 6-word scribbling in the comments below.
