weird associations

Do you associate certain things/smells/pictures/songs/movies/whatever with certain people or places?
Sure you do.
It would be weird if you didn't.
BUT.
Sometimes I have the weirdest associations.

For instance.

Oatmeal Cream Pies. Delicious Little Debbie treat. Everyone loves them.
But.
When I see them, I think of smoking weed and being high.

Yeah.

Like I said, weird.
But it's not because I smoke weed (because I don't) but when I lived with my pot-smoking brother and godbrother, they were fans of said activity.
And then they got the munchies.
And they always wanted OCP's. (which is what they called them)
So, now I connect those things in my head.

Also.
The Bath and Body Works smell Coconut Lime Verbena-- makes me think of Romania.
I wore that scent while I was there about 3 years ago.
And now, every time I smell it, I think of Romania.
And how my heart is there.

Mostly songs. But I associate Oatmeal Creme Pies with Nick Saban now. And you should, too :)

He's a thought-- just not the first one. But even when all the stuff about him and OCP's came out- I still thought "Really Nick? Munchies? hmmmm"

I'm just sayin...
