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.

pseudo seder. something better than nothing.

I first submitted under this week’s Spring Renewal contest - all things Passover, Easter, etc.
This came to me today while gathering items for our (last minute) seder plate. Nevermind roasted, egg wasn’t even hard-boiled. And my “shank bone” was leftover pork chop bone -- definitely not kosher for Passover.
But we had a great time and the most important thing about the holiday is passing the story to your children. Which I did.
