Unconscious Mutterings

I say ... And You Think:

1.  Freezing :: Cold
2.  Bikers :: Harleys 
3.  Infrequently :: Seldom
4.  Mickey :: Mouse
5.  School :: Teach
6.  Textile :: Fabric
7.  Obstinate :: Stubborn
8.  Guard :: Hark, Who Goes There?
9.  Release :: Catch and
10. Authentic :: Real 

Been awhile, eh?  It has been so long I nearly forgot about my muttering friends.  Sadly, my answers are less than interesting or inspiring.  It almost seemed like some of the prompt words were more like response words.  Why?  I don't know.  Most of the answers I originally thought of tended to be paragraphs rather than words, so I had to work to condense it down to a manageable size.

In my world, how do these words relate?  The weather today is much closer to freezing than it was yesterday.  It made me very glad that gutters were cleaned yesterday and storm windows were put in yesterday.  Usually storm windows in guarantees a heat wave.  Maybe I guessed right this year.  "Bikers" made me think of the not self-propelled kind.  I infrequently watched the Mickey Mouse club, that is, if infrequently means never.  There were too many choices that went with "school" -- job, home, building, prison... the list goes on and on.  I wondered how many people would know what a textile is, I think "obstinate" is a great word, and sadly, every time I think of guards, I time-warp back to the Brady Bunch.

Hark!!  Who goes there?
