I've a wonder, if I may? In my eighth grade English class, we played a game, called "Extend that Metaphor!", but it's not exactly what it sounds. The point was to take a familiar quote, platitude, metaphor, or saying and extended it using "scientific and specific words" until it is thoroughly unrecognizable, but (and this is the important bit) still understandable. Ex. - The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. <--- This was my metaphor back then Extension - The short, flowerless plant covering much of the Earth's surface is eternally and without exception, a stronger and deeper hue on the opposing side of the barrier, railing, or other upright structure, typically of wood or wire, enclosing an area of ground to mark a boundary.
