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.

Put a little ass into it.

So my family has this guilty pleasure. And it's inappropriate. Alert the authorities. But it is so fun.

When we are on road trips we have this game. The gist of this game is to replace one word on road signs with the word "ass". Example: "CAUTION: ASS ICES BEFORE ROAD"

So the point of this memoir is to REPLACE one word of a PREVIOUSLY WRITTEN memoir with the word "ass".

(I admit, I've been doing this with memoirs for a couple of weeks now and it is hilarious.)
