I was talking with Susanna about associations the other day. We each have colors that we associate in our minds with certain letters or numbers, and interestingly enough, a lot of them match. I have a similar thing where I pair certain colors with musical keys, and I also associate particular keys and colors with people. Susanna's version of that, as a bird watcher, is to have particular species of birds that she associates with different people. She gave a couple examples, and then, naturally, I asked what kind of bird I would be. Without a pause, she said "Oh, you're clearly a nuthatch." That completely cracked me up.
