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.

Must be old, inflation shocks me!

I can't be the only one who goes to the grocery store and is amazed at the total and the relatively few number of bags. When did Kias and Hyundais become 25K cars? And filling up with gas needs a bill with Ben Franklin on it? Are teenagers asking their parents for $100 for gas??? I stammered asking for $10 or $20 I can't even imagine being a kid today. At 7.50 an hour you'd have to work 15 hours just to pay for the cost of getting to the job!
If this gets any worse, it would be cheaper for parents to pay their kid to stay home and not work.
