Just Six Words




        At the beginning of the school year, my students worked on six-word memoirs. The 4th-8th graders all created slides that summed up their lives or said something important--in just six words.

        The above is a slide I made last school year. It sums up what I feel about footwear. Much to my daughter and granddaughter's dismay, I value comfort way over style. If the shoes are butt-ugly but feel like slippers, I'm all over them.

        Today is Labor Day. To celebrate the holiday, I'm taking it easy working hard working at procrastinating as long as possible before I write my lesson plan for Tuesday.

        How would you sum up your philosophy of life in just six words? You could even think of two, which is what I suggested to my students: think of a serious one and think of a humorous one. (They made them anonymously, without their names on the slides, so they would feel free to be honest.)

    1. Shay--I have red(dish) ones... Marbled with white streaks. Bought at the 8 Below (or 5 Below or whatever that store is called). Croc-knock-offs.

      (And what a Croc snob you've become. You used to hate them, until you slipped them onto your feet.)

  4. Eat chocolate, then dance it off!

    Hi, Sioux. I'm here to ask if you'll be my new bestie? No worries, there are no job requirements. I saw your recipe for no-fault fudge on Jono's blog, and I needed to ask. And follow.

    Cheers.

    1. Robyn--We can bond over a batch of fudge... or end up mortal enemies as we try to snatch the last piece out of the other's hand. :)

  6. I found a picture of a crocodile on a meme: "Look how instinctively the mother croc carries her baby in its mouth. Nature is beautiful". The crocodile is carrying a croc shoe.

    It made me think of you.

    because

    Wise women choose comfort not fashion.
