Hanging with the cool kids

It's a historic day in my blog world. I was minding my own business, lurking around, and catching up with my blog list. And there it was - I was tagged by fellow blogger Heather from Comparative Childhood!

Heather posted a word association game and invited me to play along. I feel like one of the cool kids! So the way it works - I read the first word and think the second word. Get it?

1. Spit it out::gum

2. Shadow::box

3. Database::info

4. Expression::emotion

5. Boss::pushover

6. Baby::blues

7. Mystic::pizza (I don't mean to steal this from you, Heather, but it's the only thing that comes to mind. I love that movie!!)

8. Kate::Moss

9. Boobies::small

10. Raid::bugs

I'm not going to tag anyone but if you read this, I encourage you to post your own word association game. And if you do, let me know so I can read it!

And because I have her undivided attention, I want to let Heather know that I love her blog. I don't think it's too heavy and I appreciate her introversion and self-evaluation. (And no, I don't think it means you never do anything frivolous!) Even though I don't parent a daughter or a teenager, I'm always interested to hear her stories about Grace and learn more about the mother/daughter relationship. I especially enjoy her posts about interactions with Grace's teachers and I definitely take something away from them that will help me in partnering with my children's teachers as they continue through the school-age years.

Oh, and I can't wait to follow her journey with the slug!

Now all of you go and read Heather's word association, as well as my favorite post she wrote (which I forwarded to my husband, a high school math teacher.)

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Natalie! Boobies::small...I would love to see the ten most frequent associations to that word ;-)

You ARE one of the cool kids! (Assuming, of course, that I am one too and can bestow this label on you, which is quite uncertain at this time.)
