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.

Mom's geek genes, dad's cooking genes.

by Bevvie on July 27, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

makes for an interesting combination in my son. ;-)actually a better combination than his mom's cooking genes and his dad's stodgy genes.

at least my son can cook a fantastic meal to eat while he watches Dune, a movie that the two of us have watched a million times. in fact, we may be the only two people who like and watch the movie.
