The metaphors were funny, like his mate Phil

I came in 2nd at Blogging for Books #5! Oh yeah. Who's your Writer, baby. Who's your Writer!
Congrats to Kris for her winning entry!

Since it is a whole month before the next Blogging for Books, here is a bit to tide over your literary hunger from J.K. Jager:

Some Metaphors Written By Students

My favorite:
Ooh... I can't pick, so it's a tie:

10. Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left York at 6:36 p.m. travelling at 55 mph, the other from Peterborough at 4:19p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

and

17. The plan was simple, like my mate Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.


Stephan's favorite:

32. It hurt, the way your tongue hurts after you accidentally staple it to the wall.

My favorite has to be, "Her vocabulary was as bad as,like,whatever." That is so typical of today's language. I love it!! What a funny list that was to read.

Hey, congratulations on your blogging for books. I love your writing!! Great job!

This one's got my vote:

"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."

Classic...
