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

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

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.

My sister indulges. I? I sin.

Or, at least, that's how it feels.

While my little sister can eat countless bags of candy and four chocolate milks a day- and stay thin as a twig-, I consider having a bowl of cereal equals "behaving badly". Yeah, so I manage to forget about it while I'm eating my chocolates and brownies. And I've figured out it's best not to feel guilty. I just try not to do it, eating stuff I shouldn't. I mostly succeed, and it shows on my size drop.

But it's still a little weird to see her eat whatever she wants, whenever she wants, while I eat light six days a week. Stupid genes.
