Coach Eli is at it Again! 6 Words or Less'll Do Ya!

Coach Eli's at it again (and Hemmingway will thank him later). Expressing a complete idea really can be done in (6) words or less...head over to Eli's to make your contribution or comment on the others. I've got mine up...this one is in honor of Honesty Day. ;)

These are fun. :)

Big thanks to Coach for the include.

  3. Could someone please tell that to Allison? It takes her 30 minutes and a million words just to tell me one thing. And she does it while not sitting still. Drives me nuts sometimes!
