Six Word Search: Your Summer In Six

Friday, August 16th, 2013

By Liz Crowder

Summer is a fleeting, mixed bag of sun-drenched fun and emotionally fraught experiences (read: family vacations). Whether you’ve decided to spend Summer 2013 gorging on over-processed delicacies at a state fair, sweating and sun-bathing on the sandy shores of a beach or watching your kids chase each other around the sprinkler to the noxious yet comforting scent of sun-screen and bug spray, it’s clear as summer begins to wind down that Six-Word Memoirs aren’t solely for the school year.

Among the six word sun-themed submissions that poured in during the summer months are memoirs that seared, sizzled and shined. Read on to see our favorite–often humorous–soliloquies of a summer very nearly gone by and find out how your fellow memoirists beat the heat (or not) this year. Click the link next to an author’s name to see more of his or her memoirs and feel free to share what your summer in six words looked like!

I’m hot, but only meteorologically speaking.

Some (do not) like it hot.

Banging radiator, summer’s on vacation again.

Overly prepared cheapskate: Summer. Purchases parka.

Beach Bummers: red flags, jellyfish, lightening.

Too well insulated for this heat.

Summer attire; grease, sweat and paint.

Sunburn. Heartburn. Repercussions of summer overindulgence.

Sunscreen is my new signature scent.

Braless in summer. Ah, sagaliciously heaven.

Beachside resident living an internet existence.

Scorching heat, people tweet, extremes meet.

Humidity and my hair are dueling.

Fleeing summer buried under school supplies.

August: Summer’s last slice of watermelon.

Freezing summer in strawberry jam jars.

    How is it that just anyone can write a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said something extremely impressive more like youve painted a quite picture above an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you actually think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not truly say something?
