Creative groupingsThis week we're learning to spot the simple and obvious yet often overlooked.

Game:  There are six words listed below.  The first post gets it easy.  All they have to do is separate the words into two groups of three and state why they are grouped that way.  Every other reply must modify the groupings.  What you must do is take one word from the first group of the previous reply and switch it with a word from their second group to make a new set of groups that still makes sense.  Then you must state what the new relationship is.
