Zack and Lori's Free-Association (31 Days, Day 7)

Click here for Table of Contents for 31 Days of Awesome

Oh my word.  I'm so sorry!  Right out of the chute I had to skip a couple of days, but I was about comatose until this afternoon and you know what?  I've had insomnia for so long that no one in the house disturbed me except to eat dinner.  I swear I felt like my body was made of lead. I'm going to count getting a ton of sleep an awesome thing (but I'm still sorry about not writing.)

On Day 5, I showed these photos and asked you, the reader, what they made you think of. I'm going to do a free-association of MY first thought and ZACK'S first thought.  We'll call this post Day 7 and pretend it happened.  OK?

Here goes!

Zack = Tea, just tea  (when I asked if he was sure, I got the "Just TEA!)
Lori = The Mad Hatter's Tea Party -- one of those better have some bourbon

Zack = flowers
Lori = creativity

Zack = not MY first car
Lori = not MY first crash.  Nope. (Guiltily looks around...)
Zack = NASCAR (due to the checkered flag)
Lori = The Easter Bunny must have been on acid.

Zack = blue dahlia
Lori = safety

Zack = yarn fest (because this is THIS)
Lori = shark!!!

All photos taken by me, Lori Anderson.
