First Things First

08E0431E-46A8-4E7D-8E34-DBC9704B96A2The blogger at The Extra..aaamile, whose name is Savio, I think, because, in his About Page, he wrote, “I love my name ‘Savio’ …in Italian it means clever or bright,” challenged me (and a number of other bloggers) to something he calls “First Things First.” It’s a game where you say the first thing that comes to your mind when someone says a word. Savio has given us two examples to illustrate how this game works:

~If I say “Love” …what’s the first word that comes to your mind?

~…and detest? [it is a stronger word than hate – so answer carefully]

Finally, Savio suggests that we “don’t think too much” when we play this game. I think I’m highly qualified to do that! 😉

So let’s do this:

~Love — This is a tough one. I’m torn between ‘blogging’ and ‘family.’ But just in case anyone in my family reads this, I’ll go with ‘family.’

~Detest — Donald Trump

~Red — Sunburn

~Money — Stock Market

~Commitment — Pledge

~Home — Shelter-in-place

~House — Home

~Honesty — Integrity

~Beautiful — Stunning

~Passion — Heat

~First glance…what do you look at? Male and Female — Eyes

~Woman — Beauty

~Sunset — Calm

~Heartbreak — Pain

~Experience — Wisdom

~Ageing — Experience

~Past, Present, or Future? Why? Timeline. Why? Because a timeline often shows the past, present, and future. Duh!

~Vulnerable — Weak

~Time — Magazine

~Date — Blind

~Relaxation — Meditation

~Death — The end

~go to person…besides family/spouse, etc. — I don’t know. Maybe Rachel Maddow?

~Childhood — Innocence

~Gift — Present

~Regret — Sadness

~Foundation —Base

~If you were to rewind? And fast forward – what’s the one thing you’d want to witness — Unless I could alter the past or change the future, not a damn thing.

So thank you, Savio, for tagging me. If any of you wish to play this game, I tag you.

    I knew a guy named Savio. He was an amateur soccer player in Brazil. His girlfriend Valeska who I became friends with used to go watch him play and she would cheer “Vie Savio vie”.

    Interesting game. Seems like a game a psychiatrist may play.

    Now that I’ve read yours, I wouldn’t be original because what will be in my head are your answers!

    Although I’m sure my answer for “detest” would be the same as yours! I like Rachel Maddow too – I try to never miss her show.
