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.

Blue Suede Shoes, Elvis brings mail...

by Knoxena on June 22, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Saturdays at work we close at 12noon and just cross our fingers the mail is delivered before we close. Today, my co-worker calls me at 11:20 and says, "Get me the mail, please." I replied, "I'm closing my eyes, clicking my heels together and saying, Carmen, bring the mail..."(Carmen is our mail carrier).
My co-worker said don't think too hard, don't want a house to fall on you. I told her that only happens for Red, Rudy slippers, I have blue suede shoes and Elvis brings the mail. I hung up the phone chuckling and in walks Carmen.
I looked at her as I dialed the phone and announced to my co-worker, "Elvis is in the building, with the mail. Blue Suede shoes really work! :)
