Tagged by Therese, Torture by Terseness

Heck, she probably dreads TALKING to you (I tried not to mention your verbosity, but, do you have the same problem IRL??)

-- Starlight, in a comment left on my blog in August 2006

I'll be the first to admit that my writing style is verbose, and I've taken some flack here and there for it. Therese, being a somewhat playful jokester with a mildly sadistic streak, has decided to tag me with the Six Word Memoir meme.

I suspect you could have dropped me into the Eagle Creek Reservoir with a concrete block shackled to an ankle, and I would have a better chance of escaping than I would succeeding at coming up with a memoir in six words. Nonetheless, I will give it my best try.

Here are the rules:

  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 that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere

  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.

Without further ado, here is my six-word memoir:
Existential crisis destroys and resurrects phoenix.

I'm going to deviate from the meme and decline tagging additional bloggers. However, for those who weren't reading this space at the time of the Thinking Blogger meme, I'll point you to my mathematical analysis of the five descendant meme.
