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.

Smile at every: sir, son, boy.

by BecomingLuke on December 30, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Whenever I'm around my family all I hear is "she" "girl" or my girl name so whenever I get called a boy or sir it makes me just happy that I'm either passing or that the person knows and respects it enough to call me that.
It frustrates me family when I get called a boy and they feel the need to correct them, so I try to hide my happiness about it but when I don't need to it makes it all the better.
So I'm all the more thankful for the volunteer and director at my secret-trans-group that make it a point to say "sir" or Logyn to me whenever they can, just because they know it helps.
