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.

Don't forget your live bait, eh.

by L2L3 on June 30, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The actual sign just said "Don't forget the bait." It was on the inside of the womens restroom door at a large gas station in the U.P. of Michigan. I doubt the necessity of that sign because when you step out of that restroom
you practically walk into a huge open tank of several
hundred live minnows. This is not far from the display of
practically every brand of camping cologne that claims
to discourage the unwanted attention of mosquitoes,
which, in the U.P., are the size of unmanned military
drones and are able to carry out search and destroy missions with the same precision and less effort.
