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.

Clueless they'll wear fancydress through Jerusalem

by madam on April 23, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I am due to be in Israel with my big Sis and by baby Brother for my niece's Bat Mitzvah. What my siblings don't know is I have a Penguin, Kermit the frog, Beer bottle and Whoopie Cushion outfit that will be sprung upon them in Jerusalem. They will embrace the moment, howl with laughter and create memories for a life time. Because life, is for consuming!
