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.

Others see grass. I see $$$.

It's a tiny patch of sunburnt grass at the front of my sixty+ year old unit block that's really doing nothing. I like the idea of knocking down the pokey little brick fence and creating three or four diagonal parking spaces. Bear in mind that I live in one of Sydney's most frequented beachside suburbs and parking space is at an absolute premium. Though there isn't much room, I'm convinced we could make it work. The sale or lease of the created spaces would certainly pay for a few renovations!
