“She knows what my Kryptonite is”

by Matt Ruff on January 8, 2009

The subject line is my contribution to Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak, out from Harper Perennial in time for Valentine’s Day.

Some other good ones I spotted while flipping through the book:

“He still needs me at sixty-four.” — Armistead Maupin

“Married by Elvis, divorced by Friday.” — G.M. Rouse

“Thought Yiddish. Married British. Oy! Oi!” — Rachel Pine

“Inevitably, his obituary didn’t mention me.” — R. Sue Dodea

And my favorite so far:

“My book title makes dating awkward.” — V. V. Ganeshananthan
