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.

New supervisor legitimately thinks I'm funny.

I should probably preface this with saying that our vacuum at work doesnt work hardly at all... it takes roughly 20 minutes to do a 10ft square...
She asked me to vacuum and a couple minutes later she walked by me to go check something outside and I said "Hey Megan you know what sucks? Not this vacuum." And she almost choked cause she started laughing so hard. People normally groan when I make that joke.
