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.

Can you define “Appropriately Crazy People”?

by _Miracle on September 5, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I used the term offhandedly in response to L2L3.

My life is filled with them, I may be one and at the risk of pointing fingers...
there may be a few of you here at Smith.

1: Appropriately crazy = those who by all rights (mostly due to experience and/or keen powers of observation) have every reason to fully lose their "s**t" yet somehow remain “decent” members of society....even though so much of their brainpower is spent thinking WTF? They may be a little off-beat but are usually a helluva lot of fun.

An Appropriately Crazy Person may chain themselves to a tree but it would be for a good cause.

Any of you care to give the definition justice?
Or even point out how wildly inappropriate the term may be.

No six required but a definite bonus ;-)
