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.

Shoes, socks, smile. Ready for work.

I have a fun job working at a recreation center. The people who come in are generally happy to be getting fit, or taking one of our many classes/excursions. They're doing something positive for their health. Each one has a different life story, things they're doing or working on, places they've seen or will be seeing shortly, family, opinions, changes-Life. I enjoy checking them in at the front desk, answering questions, or just chatting, finding out more about them. Because we have a Cardio/Weight room, close-toed shoes and socks are a must lest a stray 45 lb. weight should drop on my toes.
And the smile? It goes best with my favorite camo capris. It is afterall, a casual and most enjoyable place to wear both.
