Playing week 526 of the popular, long-running, word association meme. 🙂
Before I post my responses to the ten words given to us this week, it might be good for me to explain just what this meme is and how it works. I’ve not done that for awhile. So, from the site where this originates every week:
Free association is described as a “psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content.” Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.
That’s an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we’re just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I’ll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.
“Rules are, there are no rules.” There are no right or wrong answers. Don’t limit yourself to one word responses; just say everything that pops into your head. AND you don’t have to have your words up on Sunday. Take all week if you want! Read the FAQ for more information.
That explains what this is and how to do it. But as to why I do it…
Back in the dimly remembered past when I used to have significant others, we often found little “games” like this in various Sunday newspapers, or similar places, and they were fun to play together. They provided a simple, innocent way for us to get to know each other better.
Though I’m now pretty much retired from the “significant other” business, I still enjoy this meme. And I choose to play it right here in my little corner of the Internet, in front of God and everybody, with whomever wants to play along.
