Friday Five-Word Association

I connect the Lovin Spoonful with this song"

The instructions are:
A Word Association Friday Five
"Sorry for being a bit late. The power was out here for a few hours.

I am feeling like playing hooky, and I'm putting off sermon prep till tomorrow. It is a beautiful, sunny day at my place. So come on outside and let's play a summer Friday Five!

This post is loosely based on previous "wordy" Friday Fives from Reverend Mother and Songbird. I liked the results, and so we are doing another word association . Theirs were based on words from a lectionary text. Mine comes from the Lovin' Spoonful song, "Summer in the City."

Think summer......are you there? Below you will find five words or phrases. Tell us the first thing you think of on reading each one. Your response might be simply another word, or it might be a sentence, a poem, a memory, a recipe, or a story. You get the idea: "

And as I’m a counselor.therapist, I do get the idea and I’m sitting at my desk free associating…

1. rooftop
Up, view, see the Hudson river, steps, see the fireworks, boats

2. gritty
Ashes, rough, brittle, sharp, grey, black, dirty, neck

3. hot town (yeah, I know, it's two words)
New York, summer, sweat, humid. subway, street, hot

4. night
Dark, scary, hide. height, bite, light

5. dance
At the Xerox machine, happy, sway, play

I'll post pictures from home because I'm blogging from work, a big no no!

Interesting associations!
Catching up -- I too love the McGarrigle Sisters. And I think Mompriest is right about the tomatoes. I hope your Greenmarket has some for you. Here in ME, we have a new greenhouse grower (tomatoes are just being planted outside) and their tomatoes are on the vine as sold. However, the scare had a nice effect for me and other buyers -- the good, healthy tomatoes were on sale this week!

There's an episode of Little Bill where Big Bill & Little Bill dance and sing at the copy machine :).

Cute free association you've got going there!
