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.

Chicken-nugget lunch, hot-dog dinner...Mother fail!

by ShellDeFelice on July 14, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The "big kids' had the earth mother. They were born at home. I hand made their baby food. Soda and sugar were nowhere in our house.
Now this "little", late in life baby, gets Mc Donald's for lunch and hot-dogs for dinner? Granted they were turkey dogs from Trader Joes, but still...that Mother of the Year certificate is looking pretty unlikely.
