Default 2006 Honda Civic Burning Oil?

Why would my 2006 honda civic burn a quart of oil every 6k miles if it only has 120k miles on it? it runs great but it is for sure losing oil somewhere and it does not leak a drop.

Just some additional notes....My garage floor is clean as a whistle. Not a drop of oil on the ground and I park my car there every night. I've looked under the hood and I see no leaks. My only conclusion is that the oil is going out the tail pipe but at 120k miles that seems premature.

burning a quart of oil in 6000 miles doesn't sound that bad. does it smoke?
