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.

Standup saves household from total atrophy

by LetTheWolfin on October 23, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I can't be the only person who hates clearing up their kitchen when exhausted at the end of a day of their children not listening to them...?!
My solution? YouTube has some great standup comedy clips and I just find clips of my favourite comedians and watch/laugh away while doing one of the most tedious tasks in the whole world. Without this, l can't help thinking I'd be doomed and my household would just implode!
