A Day Of Dougie:
Word Association 101
May 9, 2022

What day is it? I can’t hear you! I said, WHAT DAY IS IT?. That’s right, boys & girls. It’s A Day of Dougie. It’s been a busy morning and I need to rest my leg for a few minutes before heading out to continue the busyness. And while I’m resting the slightly swollen and throbbing stub that I call a leg, why do a Day of Dougie. Yeah, it’s been a while. So let’s cut the chat and go straight to the Magic Bag. We’ve got “Word Association” Let’s just leave it at that and do this. And away we go.

Word Association

Word association. This is where someone says a word or name and you reply without giving it much thought, the first name or other words that come to your mind. It’s a tool used by psychologists and lazy interviewers to learn more about their patients, interviewees, etc. Sigmund Freud, aka “Siggy” in the Bill & Ted movies, was a great fan of these kinds of tests and felt that they were valuable tools for gaining insight into the minds of his patients and who they really were and why they were that way. I just think it’s fun. So without any further delay, let’s just use the Magic Bag to pick out words, and then, I’ll follow up with the first thing that comes to mind with each word. Let’s do this.

Candles: Come on baby, light my fire. I love candlelight. It’s peaceful and respectful to the senses, while normal lighting, that shit will blind you. It sucks!

Shattered Dreams: The story of my life. Be it love, work, friendships, or what I made for dinner last night, it never seems to work out. I live on a road filled with shattered dreams.

Moonshine: I call it creek liquor. It’s the same stuff you buy in the store, but a lot stronger, a lot worse tasting, and its alcohol poisoning just waiting to happen. It’s also one of my favorite things.

Lemon Heads: Just suck them and watch the different expressions your face will make. Just keep sucking.

It’s Not For Me: Some people like coffee. Some people like being lied to (Democrats). Some people like pickles. Some guys like sexual relations with women. All I can say about those things? It’s not for me.

Elite: The so-called powers that be that think they’re better than everyone else. And maybe they do have it easier, but the costs of their splendor, selling their soul, it’s not worth it to me.

Cows: They go moo! And they also run for Governor of Georgia. Oops. My bad, That’s an insult to cows.

Freaks: The real people, the good people, my kind of people.

Band Concerts: Going to school and listening to your favorite short person make atrocious noises with musical instruments. Then you tell them they did great. Yes, lie to the kids. It builds character.

Brown’s Wholesale: This was the man who used to bring novelty items to the store I used to work at. He would make his order up for the store while I would go to his truck and plunder, find the things I liked, and buy them wholesale. He always had the coolest stuff.

Snowmen: They’re men and they’re made of snow. I guess now it would be called “Snowpeople”, but I don’t care. They’ll always be snowmen to me.

Snow In The ‘Burg: It never snows here. We get rain, ice, and slush. The snow always stops at the county line.

Apples: An apple a day keeps the doctor away. That’s a lie. Maybe I didn’t throw them at the doctor hard enough. I’ll try harder next time.

Spitting Cobra: This cobra is a bad snake. The swallowing ones are much better.

Zima: My generation’s White Claw, but much better. It was great for the work beverage to take the edge off, but not get caught.

Good People: Bad Decisions: Even good people do stupid things sometimes. After all, we’re only human.

Big Boobs: If you try to do jumping jacks, you’ll get two black eyes.

Keeper Of The Bills: The poor sap who stays broke all the time and no one appreciates their sacrifice. In this house, that’s me.

Dummies: The Democratic Party and all of their supporters. No, that would-be criminal and their supporters. The dummies are the ones that believe the lies they’re told.

Free Throws: Nothing is free. You have to get fouled to get to take these and most college players these days, can’t do them worth a damn! It’s true.

And there you go. I guess that’s enough for today. It’s time now to go fix some breakfast. Thanks for reading and the continued support for my site. Any comments, thoughts, or questions, they’re welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and be awesome. I’ll see you at the Free Throw line.
