ATTRACTION

CHEMISTRY

FIREWORKS

SPARKS

SPARKS and FIREWORKS seemed to go together no matter what the category might be, but when we looked at the other options and saw ATTRACTION, it seemed like it must mean something romantic. Whatever your experience with romance, the imagery of FIREWORKS as a sign of romantic interest is everywhere in pop culture. CHEMISTRY was the next most obvious choice.

CACHE

COOKIES

DATA

HISTORY

DATA and CACHE immediately caught our attention as likely belonging together. HISTORY is also often associated with DATA, as that is normally how historians make their research legitimate. Looking at the other words, COOKIES made us think about how we recently had to clear our computer to make it run a little better and we knew that these words all had to do with internet history.

CYCLE

LAP

REVOLUTION

TURN

CYCLE and REVOLUTION caught our attention, both meaning something that has a circular nature. TURN followed quickly upon noticing that, but it took a somewhat sad amount of time for us to remember that LAP can mean things other than a place in which a cat sits. Luckily, we did realize it before we lost our streak.

WORDS BEFORE "BELL"

BAR

DINNER

LIBERTY

TINKER

We did not pay much attention to this category until we started writing about it, as we simply picked these words as the last ones left. None of them ever seemed to belong elsewhere, but looking at it now it does make sense if not a little hard to discern. TINKER is our favorite word here, as a Tinker Bell costume featured prominently for Halloween when we were little.
