More on Metaphor

For those of you struggling to write your slice of life story in 600 words using metaphor. Here are a couple I heard yesterday:
Regarding the political discussion of raising our debt ceiling: 
“We are just going to have to eat our peas.” 
Regarding a temporary three to six month solution: “take off the bandaid”
More: “Are we on the same page?”
“Let’s lift the hood and see whats in there.’
“Am I touching an exposed nerve?”
Picture these as literal statements and you see what makes them metaphors.
See you Wednesday, July 20th, 6:00 PM Safety Harbor Library. All invited.
