"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


a contest

Gentle readers, I am WAY busy today. But here's a fun inspiration: could you sum up your life in six words?

Readership at Texas in Africa has increased a lot in the last few weeks. I'm not really sure why, but welcome to all new readers. I think this presents a great opportunity for you people to reveal who you are, as well as for longtime readers to show us a little about themselves. So, since I don't have time to write a thoughtful post today, we're going to have a contest to see who can write the most amusing/thoughtful/interesting summation of your life in six words in the comments section. There will be prizes of a to-be-determined sort.

So put on your thinking cap. Here's my entry:

Texas, Tennessee, Texas, Connecticut, Texas, Africa.

Ready? Go!
