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.

"Wait... You like boys? Since when?"

A phrase that has now become popular to be directed at me.

Last weekend it was my grandpa, this weekend it was my aunt.
Neither know that I am trans and both learned about me having a girlfriend (previously) second hand, so I guess it's kind of a fair question.
Either way, both times it's caught me off guard and I started laughing.
