A Word Association Friday Five

Hot town, summer in the city...
A little word association for a summer day, courtesy of Singing Owl:

1. rooftop
"When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face..."
(I'll show my age; the voice in my head just then belonged to Carole King, not James Taylor.
No, not the Drifters! I don't go back quite that far!)

2. gritty
Beach! Sand! Feet! Bathing Suit! Car!

3. hot town (yeah, I know it's two words)
Houston, of course!

4. night
Muggy summer nights in South Texas (or the Mississippi Delta), hoping to catch a little breeze as the temperature drops from 95 to 80....

5. dance
"Summer's here and the time is right
For dancin' in the street"
Sounds like a good idea!

Glad I don't live in Texas. I did once, in El Paso, and I fainted on the way home from school. Then again I'm sure there are compensations! Good play.

Corpus Christi could tie Houston! And these days it is just plain HOT in Texas.

Uh oh. The voice(s) in my head were indeed The Drifters. Does it help if I say I do like the other two versions also? :-)

Ooh, 95 is a little too hot for me. 85 is ok.

I like your stream-of-consciousness answer to #2!

night-- always reminds me of walking away from a retreat center one night and discovering some true darkness and some fear on not seeing what was out there. Made me appreciate all those light images in scripture
