Link: New metaphors from old cliches

David L., a student in one of my creative writing classes this semester, has posted some new endings to some familiar comparisons. Here are some of my favorites: 

You are the sun in my sky—

The person I can’t stand to look at for more than 10 seconds.

Love is a lemon

Either bitter or sweet—

Or broken beyond repair.


Time is money—


Happiness is a brick of gold—

Most of it is locked away in a vault in Kentucky.

Relationships are peanut butter and jelly—

Dangerous to nerds.
