Name Something That Melts

In honor of the stifling, horrific heat outside today, I’m going to take a stab at the Family Feud question: name something that melts.

I usually use these questions as a little mental jumpstart. They can be useful when I’m getting ready to work on a longer writing project.

I’m always surprised at how hard it is for me to call up what should be easy answers when put under a little bit of pressure.

As to the pressure, it’s not much: I’m going to set a timer for 40 seconds today and see how many answers I can come up with:

Okay:

  • Ice cream
  • M & Ms
  • Ice
  • Snow
  • Hearts
  • Chocolate
  • Butter
  • Plastic
  • CDs when you leave them in the car
  • Icicles (blah, that’s a sad duplicate of ice)

I thought I’d be able to come up with more examples that weren’t food. Guess I should go eat.

If you liked this little experiment you might enjoy some of the other similar posts I’ve written, like name something that begins with the word great.

I hope you’re somewhere with an air conditioner blowing in your face.

Josh
