What can YOU say in six sentences?
When I was in high school, we were asked to stand at the front of the class while the rest of the room wrote a single word to describe us. One word. I still have my collection of "words" in a small box along with other mementos, a fairly good representation of who I am considering my classmates were more like associates than intimates.
The other night I looked over at my spouse of nearly a decade as we lay together in bed and asked, "If you could describe me in one word, what would it be?"
There was at first a broad smile, eyes cast up at the ceiling, and then a chuckle, "Why are you asking me this?"
"Just one word, " I said again, and after another chuckle, there was a yawn, a roll over toward the lamp on the bedside table, then the room went completely quiet.
