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.

That fucker just slows me down.

This horse is wondering: why at the finish line does the jockey get a check, a trophy, a bottle of champagne, roses, and a kiss from a beautiful woman? That fucker just nips my ass, rides my back, and slows me down.

Those in Washington had better weigh that parable, before all the horses figure it out.
