Most words have more than one meaning or definition.  The record of 464 definitions is held by the little 3-letter word, set.  Usually when we see a word, one meaning comes to mind first. For example, when I first saw today's prompt, I thought of Frosty the Snowman.  Below are the ones that popped up most frequently, although the first three aren't technically definitions.
  1. Frosty the Snowman, the song, written and recorded in 1950.
  2. Frosty the Snowman, the TV show, first aired on December 7, 1969.
  3. Wendy's Frosty was introduced in 1969 when the first Wendy's was opened.
  4. Weather related.  Very cold with frost forming on surfaces.
  5. Demeanor.  Cold, unfriendly manner; giving someone a frosty look.
  6. Color.  Silvery-white, as in frosty hair.
  7. Military term.  To be on edge or to be ready.

What do you think of when you see Frosty?

    3. I will admit, the first two were the song and the TV show when I saw the prompt.

      1. Yeah, me too, and it made me look them up. We have the ability to learn something new every day.

    4. That damn Frosty the Snowman - couldn't get it out of my mind and it would go no further. Punted on the prompt.

      1. My first thought too, then I googled Frosty. Amazing what you can find on the internet.

    5. Number seven I had never heard of... and number six I would not have thought of. That is a really neat list!

      1. You weren't only writing about Frosty, you were living it.

    7. I hate to cliché, but I think of the snowman. Of course, I can count on one hand how many times I've seen or built an actual snowman.

      The first time was also my first time in snow as I grew up in a state where snow doesn't happen or if it does, it doesn't stick. Anyway, what shocked me (and this will sound extremely silly) was that I got drenched making a tiny snowman.

      I'd seen pictures of snow and it always looked like this nice fluffy stuff. It was shocker when I got drenched. However, I wasn't very old when I learned this lesson:~)
