Topic tags/keywords: humor question

I feel like I am really going out on a limb here, as I am not sure what kind of reaction I am going to get but I stumbled upon this book called “Not quite what I was planning” It consists of 6 word memoirs of famous and not so famous authors. The object was to describe their lives in six words. for example one says “Cried. Defied, Sighed. Died. Reapplied. and another states”nothing profound, I just sat around.” So what I was thinking (and yes I am aware of the danger in that) was if everyone would do one except have it be about your woodworking. Perhaps a shop mishap? a glue up that didn’t. Is anyone game? I hope so. I think it may be very interesting. I will even start. Sooo here goes—- ” Broke knee, given saw,
found passion!”
