Wordy Friday Five

A mellow-sounding Singing Owl brought us this great Friday Five:

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:

1. rooftop:
Well, it's not a great video, but you know how I love this man...

2. gritty:
Sand in one's swimsuit. Nuff said.

3. hot town (yeah, I know, it's two words):
I am such a city girl, and I am so not in a city right now. *sigh* But I love hot city nights, esp. in my favorite town.

4. night:
Uh-oh. I think I just answered this one. So we'll go with a totally different song, instead. But I will add that summer nights make me much spunkier than the rest of the year.

5. dance :
I LOVE going dancing. My lovely spouse was willing for a while, but that seems to have passed. *sigh* On the other hand, my favorite (moving closer!) girlfriend and I might go line dancing this summer. (Now I just have to find me some red boots...)


  1. LOL! I LOVE both of these songs. "Baby Get Ready" may be the most awesome dance song ever--and it is so SUMMER! Great job!

  2. So, fishing in the dark is kind of like watching the submarine races???
    Great songs!

  3. so i listened to the songs simultaneously by accident... uhm yeah. basically summer goes from easy and mellow to uhm interesting after dark? yup sums it up.

  4. love it- enjoyed the vids

  5. I got a beautiful pair of red Justin Ropers for my high school graduation. I loved those boots, but I gave them away a couple of years ago because my feet grew a size with each kid. Oh, the things they don't tell you!

    Great play!

  6. Line dancing is great fun, although I haven't learned a lot of country dances, I must admit.

    My absolute favorite is the electric slide, but just the other day I heard the Macarena song and jumped up to do that dance!

    Good times, good times!! :)

  7. Wonderful songs. Thanks.

  8. Sand in the swimsuit seems a universal experience/memory!


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
-Saint Molly Ivins
