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.

Rode with Piper on last day.

Yesterday was my last day of work ... ever. The ride home was so pleasurable because I was listening to the Audible version of Piper Kerman's Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison. I'm trying to get that puppy done so I can immerse myself in the Netflix series based on the book. Apparently, it is addictive. I have friends who say they've done seven episodes in a weekend. I'm about halfway done, and I like it a lot. The Benevolent First Lady of the Land of Six has really got a Midas touch thing going.
