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.

The new do dissed by one.

I have had long hair for most of my life, even as a little tyke (see picture above). Over the past couple of years I've gone shorter. The second photo is me dressed as my daughter for Halloween in 2011. The next is a haircut I got earlier this year.

The latest do (the shortest I've ever had my hair) is the final. I love it! I've received nothing but compliments ... until today. Then she said, "OH MY GOD, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?"

Thanks, lady. I appreciate you, and I know where you work and park your car. :)
