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.

The locker room at my YMCA is not well known for its spaciousness. So when you are sitting on the bench squeezed into the middle of the already tight quarters, and you are sitting directly in front of my locker, and you are face down in your cell phone, and you don't respond to my polite "excuse me" request, and you don't heed my second "excuse me" warning cry, and you don't acknowledge my 'excuse me budge and nudge' as I attempt to sidle by...

I will by all means drop my towel and bend over so you must then deal with my bare ass dangerously close to your face.
