Imagination, It's Funny

I'm oddly, nerdily proud. For the first time in life, as far as I can recall, I created a simile. I even Googled it, to make sure I wasn't inadvertently plagiarizing someone.

So, here goes:

As dull as a stranger's funeral.

That counts as the high-water mark of my intellectual prowess today. Then again, those hairbrushes weren't going to clean themselves.

SIGH.

I'd better go before I get as dull as a stranger's funeral.

I'm from the South, land of stellar similes like "busier than a cat trying to cover it's sh!t on a marble floor." I must say, this is very good.

That is very, very good!

I think my comment moderation word is in the Urban Dictionary for sex. Porked? Oh, you wry thing. And, the only reason I know this is that I had to look it up before when trying to figure out lyrics to a song.

I would add to that "a stranger's wedding." Because I did do this. ONCE. I was young, single, poor and had a free three-day weekend when a friend-of-the-bride invited me to come along for the road trip. Back then, "wedding" meant free food and booze. Yep, I was all over that.

As unexpected as a newfound simile!

Well done (and, so sad to say...very true.)

Cheers!
