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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Argue only using cartoon character voices.

by _Miracle on October 9, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

What if you agreed to only speak in anger while helium was in effect?
One big drag of helium then...go.

Or argue theatrically, with full drama, opera or Shakespearian grandiosity.

Accent, cartoon or even singing arguments.

Admittedly this would work better if you both stand right out of reach...Just in case a violent/wild urge comes about when your partner is laughing at you hysterically.

Inspired from the movie – The 5 year Engagement.
They were Elmo and the Cookie Monster.
