Six degrees of propinquity: The genesis

On the 10th November 2009, the Artwiculate Word of the Day was Propinquity. Associating with 6° of Separation and 6° of Kevin Bacon, I came up with a game to play within the game of Artwiculate.

Six Degrees (6º) of Propinquity – the game for etymophiles and lexicophiles. Link two apparently unconnected words in six or fewer stages.

6º of Propinquity EG Distance Apartness Apart a part (O Fr = at the side/beside) Beside Closeness Propinquity [Tada!]

And all without benefit of coffee – which I’m off to get now.

@dmriver Ha! Just came into my head in the shower. Wonderful things, showers. Regard it as creative commons & torture who U like with it 🙂
