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.

Ever ponder a toilet paper roll?

Minutia. But, it is a ponderable thought.

There is something to be said about how money is made.

1. the width of the roll
2. the size of the squares
3. the thickness of each tissue
4. the number of squares to a roll

All minutia, but each of these variables has made money for a corporation.

This is the kind of *stuff* I ponder.
