A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Spoon-feeding the cat: origin of whipped.

I did this out of love of her old self. She'd gone off her dry food, then walked away from the previously crazy-delicious nirvana of what I'm sure she cat-thought as WET FOOD!!! When she turned her nose at that, heart in my throat, I hand-fed her bits with a small spoon. That stopped working, so I opened the people-tin of salmon. She scarfed it with no help, took a toxic poop in the catbox then meowed to be let outside. Pussy-whipped.
