Seven Words: the game

I'm in the middle of working up words and photos from last week's vacation. In the meantime, I'm in the mood for a bit of a word game, if anyone's interested in tossing in a bit of help.

The game du jour: Seven Words. The original idea is to select seven words, though I don't guarantee I'll go to (or stop at) seven. Each individual word will be used as the basis for a piece of writing, with an explanation at the end of how the story was derived from the word.

Since I'm still a bit tired from the drive, and don't expect to have any photos processed or vacation entries written before tomorrow night at the earliest, now would be a good time to start up a game. Suggest words - interesting or mundane, whatever strikes you - and I (or someone else) will pick out a few and we'll go from there.
