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.

Your joy attack can happen now

by Staraj on August 28, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Recently saw a Bayer television commercial in which a man seated in a restaurant is handed a message from a wait person that reads: "Your heart attack will happen tomorrow ". Not the kind of note anyone would like to receive, of course. So, the man sees the light and starts taking Bayer aspirin regularly.

To each his/her own drug. My drug of choice is joy. But thanks for the six, Bayer.
