Did you see this article about #sixwordwar – soldiers summarizing their war-time experiences in only six words? So many of the submissions are fabulous:
“Four trucks out, three trucks back.”
“I’ll never be this cool again.”
“Never deployed, uncomfortable with thank yous.”
I spent this weekend writing my own six word summarizes of war from the domestic front.
“Quality family time: daddy’s on skype.”
“Mustn’t forget: child psychologist appointment today.”
“WTH? They won’t accept the POA?”
“Family Separation Pay doesn’t cover lawncare.”
“Valium? No thanks. I prefer vodka.”
“Every morning, check for strange cars.”
And I thought of some related to redeployment:
“A weight lifted from my heart.”
“Remember when? No, you weren’t there…”
Let’s not leave the war stories to just the soldiers. I’d love to hear your own #sixwordwar experiences.
