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 six pack insulated by Oreos.

by ChefJim on January 19, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

As a teacher of cooking (and nutrition... blech! )I am often in the position to explain why we prepare food using certain techniques that appeal to the masses. Of course, nutrition being important to many appearance-conscious consumers, I often provide healthy alternatives. My students, predictably, will ask about my own consumption practices and why my physique is less than Adonis-like. I quip that I, indeed, posses a very developed six-pack of abdominal muscles and that those rock-hard abs are kept warm and protected by an inch or two of Oreo-induced insulation.
