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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Wonderful whisking away ended with sick.

My wonderful husband whisked me away on a spur of the moment weekend getaway to New York City. The attached picture I took from our room at the Ritz in Battery Park. We shopped Fifth Avenue and strolled Rockefeller Center. We saw a lovely play, Betrayal starring Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig, and dined on housemade ricotta cavatelli and Matzo Ball soup from Katz's Deli.

And then we decided to share a virus.

Definitely a weekend where the pros outweighed the cons. And just what I needed to get me in a holiday mood.
