Story of my life

From Rags to Riches

by Susan Larson

Your Life in 150 words Contest Winner 

I was born in a chicken coop in Appalachia in 1947. When I was four, we moved to Erie PA, on a great lake, where my life was like a 1960's Beach Blanket movie. When I graduated, I defied my parents' wishes for me to get married and mass produce Catholic babies.
I simultaneously worked three jobs to put myself through college. I married who I thought was a nice guy, but who turned out to be philosopher who didn't believe in working for a living. While I was teaching, he screwed around. I was thankful to get out of that marriage with no STDs.
Second time around I married Prince Charming and have lived like a queen ever since. Even though we lost two of our four children, we cherish our life together and adore our grandkids.
We now live on a lake where I write happily ever after.

Write the entire story of your life in no more than 150 words. You can be experimental, creative, funny, serious, provocative, reflective, whatever style you best feel represents your life.
