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.

Has water made you feel intoxicated?

by Wench on February 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I do a terrible job of staying properly hydrated. In the past week, I have actually had more coffee than water, which is awful. There have been whole days where I think the only thing I drank at all was a coffee in the morning. I'm not sure why I'm conscious.

Anyway, tonight I started drinking water and realized, wow, I'm really thirsty (brilliant). I've had like six glasses of water and now my head is reeling and I feel woozy. A handy-dandy Google search informs me that my electrolytes are out of balance. Hooray. I can't even drink water correctly.
