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.

Panty sale. Checkout fail. Another bail.

THIS should be the story of my life. Everytime I get sucked into the "buy five, get one free" or "six for $15" or some other configuration of baragin, I get snookered. I spend an hour trying to find the right number of items, in the right size, that I like. But when I get to the register, I always end up with one item that doesn't qualify. "Oh, sorry, that's not included in this promotion." So I abort the mission and go home pantyless.

Well...you know what I mean. ;)
