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.

Her perky is irking. Percolating. Percocet...

by Redx3 on July 19, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Lil' sis has a love affair with the sunrise and she is as perky as can be early in the morning. I, on the other hand, am unapproachable prior to two cups of coffee. Her early morning call caught me off guard and growling into the phone at 6:00 a.m. If I had anything leftover from my last dental procedure, I would be using it today to crawl back into bed and drown out her happy voice. Instead, I'm glaring at the coffee maker willing it to brew faster.
