I've managed to master the amazing new skill of cardio-reading. Yes-- it's as strange as it sounds, but manages to provided tons of entertainment while imparting ideas and philosophies through the written word. Double bonus, eh? I can read, while sweating like mad, and burning insane doses of calories.
As I was cooling down from my run, I thumbed through a fitness magazine and stumbled upon an interesting article. The article was about a web-site that encouraged people to write a six word memoir. Interesting.
The more I thought about it, the more I found myself enthralled with the idea of writing one of these exceptionally short, yet all encompassing life stories.
I walked and cooled down and tossed around the idea in my mind.
"Humm...This is going to be harder than I thought," I found myself thinking.
Putting together six words that completely summarizes one's self proves ridiculously challenging. One must be exceptionally succinct and specific, while completely capturing the whole of their person and character.
Geez....six words? For real?
After much contemplation I present my revised and edited, final-copy, six word memoir.
Continues learning, growing, creating and playing.

"I'll make a blanket," I thought. "Yep- I'll knit her a blanket."
I just gave it to her yesterday. (gulp)

I present Apple Pear Crisp- the working girl version.
I'm a huge fan of this ultra-simple, especially delicious recipe. If you've got a few cans of sliced pears and some apple pie filling, you're all set.
Don't forget the butter. Smashing it with your fingers provides an immense amount of stress relief, along with an ultra-moisturizing hand treatment.
Be honest, can you really resist real butter and soft, supple skin? I think not.
See, I told you this was going to be a winner. As far as I'm concerned, if I could just remove the calories, this would pretty much be perfection at its finest.
I'll admit it, this crumbly, sweet topping was fabulously decedent, even before it was baked.
I know, because quite frankly, I sampled quite a few morsels. (grin)
Don't forget to add coffee and ice cream and a cute puppy.

When I was but a small fry,
I played and played and played.
For hours upon hours upon hours.
I remember using black markers and typing paper
U make this EZ and fun."
