Excerpts from an amazing analogy anthology.

  • Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

  • He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree.

  • Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

  • Her date was pleasant enough, but she knew that if her life was a movie this guy would be buried in the credits as something like “Second Tall Man.”

    Caleb’s favorite is “Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze.”

    I still prefer this one: “His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.”
