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.

Kilt short, parade long, shamrock shake.

With blustery winds and flurries predicted, which by the way, I am convincing myself are just the strain of super lice outbreak that's recently been reported, another cold St. Patty's ahead of us. Dancing to keep warm doing the Shamrock shake, while enjoying mine from Mickey D's, because it simply is NEVER to cold to eat ice cream. Enjoy!
