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.

Vintage coat provided a new mindset.

Hubby and I stopped by a buddy's antique store. Tucked away upstairs in a corner he found the most beautiful wool coat with fur trim. He asked me to try it on and immediately said, "I'm buying you this." I wore it doing errands today, and I felt special. $80 can buy some average coat at Marshalls, or it can buy something fabulous. Something that made me channel my inner Jackie O.
