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.

Private conversations in public. New norm.

by canadafreeze on July 17, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Overhearing private, telephone conversations has become a regular occurance, especially while dining out. I have heard many things I don't want to know about people I don't know, and it still feels like I am the one doing something wrong. Can't turn away. Don't want to leave the dinner that is costing me many monies.

Just another example of the generation gap, I suppose. Most younger people see nothing wrong with this social activity. I find it embarrassing.
