Student Metaphors

Post by arover on Tue Jun 22, 2010 1:52 pm

Someone sent me this today, I liked a lot of them.


1. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two
sides
gently compressed by a Thigh Master.
2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking
alliances like
underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience,
like a
guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without
one of
those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country
speaking
at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse
without
one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E. coli, and he was
room
temperature beef.
5. She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a
dog makes
just before it throws up.
6. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
7. He was as tall as a six-foot, three-inch tree.
8. The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had
disintegrated
because of his wife’s infidelity came as a rude shock, like a
surcharge at
a formerly surcharge-free ATM machine.
9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the
way a
bowling ball wouldn’t.
10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty
bag
filled with vegetable soup.
11. From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had
an
eerie, surreal quality, like when you’re on vacation in another
city

and Jeopardy comes on at 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30
12. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a
sneeze.
13. The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots
when you
fry them in hot grease.
14. Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced
across
the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one
having
left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from
Topeka at
4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.
15. They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket
fences
that resembled Nancy Kerrigan’s teeth.
16. John and Mary had never met. They were like two
hummingbirds who
had also never met.
17. He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant, and she
was the
East River.
18. Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel
trap, only
one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.
19. Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do.
20. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But
unlike Phil,
this plan just might work.
21. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from
not
eating for a while.
22. He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck,
either,
but a real duck that was actually lame, maybe from stepping on a
land mine
or something.
23. The ballerina rose gracefully en Pointe and extended one
slender
leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.
24. It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids
around with
power tools.
25. He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard
bells,
as if she were a garbage truck backing
up.

9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t.

How poetic!

I'm thinking the last one could be modified into a chat up line?

Some very good descriptive work going on their arover.

My personal favourite:

16. John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.

I dated an absolutely gorgeous Ukrainian Pole Dancer in a small, private curtained room in Prague once for about 9 minutes and 40 seconds!!!

What a dancer.
