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.

Hip-Hop from "flossin" to "Thrift Shop"

by TheUnknownComic on February 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The economy must be far worse than the unemployment numbers or even the shrinking GDP indicate. Hip-hop used to be dominated by lyrics talking about Cristal, Ferraris, Maybachs, Rolexs, Audemares and other high end items. Now the #1 song talks about shopping at a thrift shop. If the economy is affecting rappers, there is no hope for the rest of us! :)
