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.

Told myself to "slow down cowgirl".

by jl333 on March 6, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I just walked in the door after a busy day. I was so hungry, I started eating my dinner at the counter, off my plate before I even sat down. I quickly reminded myself to SLOW DOWN COWGIRL...the food will still be there after the 3 seconds it takes for me to sit my ass down. I'm now eating so slow, that I'm actually taking the time to compose the backstory in between bites. That would've never happened before
