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.

Vegetables always "taste just like candy."

by LotLessMonster on May 2, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

they never did. hid them in my napkin. put them in my glass of milk, 'cause we could put that in the fridge if we didn't finish it. would poor it down the sink later. years later, at 19 years old, trying to convince my father, who was dying from cancer, to eat, i had the chance to offer my opinion..."it tastes just like candy". we both had the same sense of humor so i was not surprised by his smiling reaction. over 30 years ago and i still can't even type the words without choking up. i eat my vegetables now.
