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.

He's fine with sharing my cold.

He came over and noticed the bags of cough drops on the counter. Asked if the kids were sick or just stocking up. I told it was me who had the scratchy throat. He wrapped me up in his arms and said looks like he will have a cold next week too. Then he gives me a kiss that said I've missed you this week. :-)
