Metaphors have a way of holding the most truth in the least space.

  1. So that’s why every AU/AG blog reminds me of a toony roster saying, “Nice kid, but about as sharp as a bag of wet mice.” 😉

    • Just because nitpicking is fun, that’s a simile rather than a metaphor. Think direct comparison (as/like) vs indirect comparison.

      Metaphor is more like the sunset of her eyes that blinded me to everything else in the room.

      Which brings me to my own reason for commenting… metaphor offers the best of all truths, because it is subject to interpretation, so capable of making everyone happy; subject to their own interpretation, their own truth!
