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.

Couldn't remember him, only ice cream.

Last night, my friends and I went to a vegetarian restaurant near our hostel. After dinner, I ordered coca tea ice cream which tastes like green tea ice cream. The guy working at the restaurant probably has a few years on me, but he was really cute. I could barely remember his face, so I need to go back sometime soon ;)
