Next Word is a game that I bring back to writercize about once a month or so. It's a really simple word association game - I give you five words and for each you give me the first word that comes to mind. It's as easy as word play can get, but the fascinating thing about it is seeing how differently all of us process words and thoughts!
writercize: Write the first word that comes to mind for each of the following words.
Leave your response as a comment - if you care to explain the relationship between your words please do! It's always nice to see the back story.

- pen --- pig (or as my kids say when their room resembles that of a pig pen - a big old messy mess)
- glue --- connect
- rumble --- thunder
- stunt --- growth (memories of early childhood hearing coffee was not for kids because it would stunt your growth --- i enjoyed a few sips here and there and ended up several inches shorter than my mom or sister. maybe there was something to that!)
- relief --- Tums
