Exercise #177 : A Drink of Cool Water
This is an exercise in making up similes, that is, figures of speech comparing unlike things. For example, you might say, a cup of coffee is like a slap in the face. Or, a cup of coffee is like a cup of sludge. Or, a cup of coffee is like a hello from the donut. And so on. Come up with as many similes as you can for "a drink of cool water is like..."
A drink of cool water is like ...
- a slap in the face after a long, hot day
- a refreshing foot massage... for your tongue?
- an oasis in the middle of an arid desert
- a swift breeze right before a thunderstorm
Does anyone else have any ideas?
P.S. Sorry for the uber short post. Homework beckons, and I've procrastinated long enough.
