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.

To Thine Own Self Be True. Well it is from Shakespeare but it is something I truly believe everyone should do in 6 words!

That's fun. I like being short. I am short. Thanks, Rosey. Smiles.

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!

Diane Estrella said...

I love brevity. Hemingway certainly did it the best!

Mama to 5 said...

I am sorry I do not know who coach Eli is? who is he?

Jenny Tate said...

Sounds fun. Might have to participate in the next one!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I need my Hubs to go do this one. He take forever to tell me anything.

mail4rosey said...

He's a blogger. And dad/soccer coach. :)

Felicia Franceschelli said...

Wow less than six words? I like being concise, but that is really short!

Elephant's Child said...

No way. No skill. No time.

My wife could learn from this. Just tell me what you want in as few words as possible.

Honesty day is new to me but sounds fun!

menopausal mama said...

These are always the best! I was supposed to do it but I forgot to turn mine in….WAAAAH!

Blue Grumpster said...

Didn't I tell you? No, I didn't. ;)

Blue Grumpster said...

Since I only know six words, this should be easy. But I'm horrible at math too so this will be tricky.

Honesty Day.... Just one day?

Shell Feis said...

I talk FAR too much to keep it under six words! How fun.

Kristi Maloney said...

Okay, will give it a try. (There's my six words..and I'm being honest...lol) Seriously, I will go and give it a try.

coach-daddy said...

Rosey - your readers are absolutely awesome. Thank you so much for linking to it, and for your Twitter followers, who tweeted it out to roughly 339,009,233 Twitter accounts. incredible!

If you're in my inbox or I visit your site between now and the next 6 Words (May 28!), you'll get an invitation to participate. It's a blast.

Again, thank you so much Rosey - and to your awesome readers, too.

6 words. I can't get my son to finish his thought ever! I'll have to try the 6 words with him.

Anonymous said...

My teenage son has the gift of using as many works to answer a question that is asked and yet not giving an actual answer. He could use this

Autumn said...

To be, or not to be... Ha! Six words or less is hardly enough to convey an idea, unless you are Shakespeare. (I am no Shakespeare!) lol

Autumn said...

((And my honesty? I really really really don't like to snuggle with my husband after he eats Indian food. How's that for 6 words? lol))

Nikki said...

What an interesting concept! I am a very wordy person, so I'd have a hard time with this!

Tami said...

Some of the 'lies' are actually quite funny. :)

Does that mean I need to comment with only 6 words? Oops. ;)

Rambling Momma said...

6 words, haha, i speak that much in a second, haha

I am never one for brevity. Even trying to keep my word count down for "Tweets" is huge for me!

Curby Aardvark said...

Never give up and never surrender.

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Too much of a challenge! - oops.

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

Hard to do sometimes!

Melissa Coleman said...

I contributed one not to long ago with Eli when he done the holiday one. Lots of fun! :)

Jamie F said...

Can someone please tell me this to my husband!

Amanda Her said...

Love the quotes. But I don't think I can only use 6 words - I can talk a whole lot!

coach-daddy said...

Melissa - we need to get you back into one soon.

coach-daddy said...

He's my hero ... well minus the drinking part. Have you ever seen the Hemmingway writing app?

coach-daddy said...

Hey Jenny - I'll make you a deal - come comment on this one, and I'll send you an email with the prompt for the next go-round. Sound goo?

coach-daddy said...

Even tougher, Felicia - EXACTLY six words.

Megan Chamberlin said...

How many times does "Um" count in the six? Third trimester = brain function at lowest setting! :)

Pauline Cabrera said...

"Doing the laundry is not fun." - EH, just being honest! :P

Erica Buteau said...

That post is so funny! What a fun idea this is!

StacieinAtlanta said...

I hate waking up before dawn. It does make you think about how to convey a message.

Krissyar said...

haha - I say "Yay, kids missed the bus again" regularly lol.

Sandra Sears said...

You can definitely make a statement with just one word but six words can make it stronger if used correctly :)

Cindy Batchelor said...

Wow i'm trying to think of something and coming up blank. lol!

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

I can't think of anything. Lol. But I am very intrigued

Six words, mmmm - :"Janeane Davis, wife, mother, Christ lover." done. I like this idea, that big things come in small packages.

BrettBMartin said...

i'm too wordy for 6 words.


i really do talk a LOT

coach-daddy said...

Your contribution was hilarious! So was the one that didn't fit the PG-13 rating. I need another post for those.

coach-daddy said...

You should get in on the action next time, Betty.

coach-daddy said...

I'm glad there's just one day a year for it.

Colette S said...

Even less :)
This too shall pass :)

coach-daddy said...

coach-daddy said...

six are tougher than 600 for sure ...

coach-daddy said...

He might have a career in congress, Jennifer.

coach-daddy said...

it's the ultimate efficiency. Well, outside of 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1 word.

coach-daddy said...

We're pretty similar, actually, in that we both live in a pineapple under the sea.

coach-daddy said...

Hubby stinks like curry at night. There you go, Autumn!
