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.

Most parents would at least ask...

I was in ER for 6 hours because everyone thought I was having an appendicitis, got home walked right past my dad and he said nothing. Most parents would at least ask, "hey what did the doctors say?" or "what's wrong?" But nope, he didn't say anything to me, and his fiance's mom is the one that woke me up to go to my room even though everyone else had walked right by me to go to bed.
