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.

Cheesy things that make me itchy.

by Skyebird on June 18, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I had just graduated high school. I made gifts for my teachers, to thank them for being so kind to me. I made them each a "Keep calm and teach on" poster frame and a flower pot of pens. Some of them hugged me and smiled so wide. I felt itchy. It was all that happiness welling inside me. So cheesy. ><
