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.

must I ALWAYS lose ONE earring?

it drives me bananas. just did it again today, lost one of a pair of beautiful beaded Indian earrings I got for my birthday last week. GRRRRRR. this may be the real reason VanGogh cut off his ear -- he was sick of losing just one earring.
