Our writing assignment for today includes composing a simile. By definition, “A simile…makes a connection or introduces the idea of similarity between two concepts that aren’t intrinsically connected, leaving an interesting mental image in its wake.”
I don’t have a poem for today, but I can share some ditties that I have either said or heard over the years. A couple of these phrases may not fit the technical requirements of the assignment, but they do conjure up an image:
- He’s more laid-back than an ironing board.
- He could find a silver lining in a mushroom cloud.
- He’s about as useful as a snooze button on a smoke detector.
- He couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat.
What have you said or heard lately that might fit this list?
