    Figure of speech decription game

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by MiscEtc, Jul 23, 2011.

    My first thread- hooray!:D
    Alright, the goal of this game is to redecribe a given sentence using an unusual or over the top figure of speech, either personification, metaphore or hyperbole.

    Example:
    Let's say someone wrote:
    "It would be very dark soon, as the sun was setting, and there would be a new moon tonight."

    the next person rewritten using a figurative language:
    "It would be very dark soon, as the sun was just about to end it's shift for the day, and the moon had called in sick."

    The new version doesn't need to be perfectly precise, it just has to present the the basic idea of the original sentence. After they rewrite the sentence of the person before them, they make a new sentence for the next person.

    Such as:

    "The stove was heated up the water, causing it to boil."

    then the next person rewrites it, like before.
    "The heat of the stove made the water very uncomfortable, causing it to throw a tantrum."

    and so on...
    also, if you like, you may write more than one new version of the regular sentence:
    "The stove began giving the water-molecules in the pot ADHD, making them extremely hyper and excited, many of them attempting to jump up above their bretheren, and out out of the pot."


    Alrighty then, I'll start This off:

    The food smelled horrible.

    The food was malodorously opposed to my nose's olfactory tranquility causing my nose to give the belligerent food a cold nostril.



    She fell in love today.

    Her heart flipped somersaults and sang "Bing bang boom shadda wham" when she saw his face today for the first time.

    The Summons:
    Donald had an awful feeling in his gut as he walked down the long hall to the Personnel office.

    Donald's gut was an erupting volcano as he reluctantly walked down the long, narrow hall toward the gloating Personnel office.



    Joe ran for his life when the lion roared.

    Joe suddenly bolted up and was gone when he heard the terribly frightening roar of a gigantic male lion.


    The kitten jumped off the couch.

    Like a gargantuan grasshopper, the calico kitten leapt from the nurturing couch and clawed repeatedly at the terrified, dangling ball of red twine.


    Susan wept bitterly.

    Susan's tear ducts swelled like the muscles on a body builder, pumping liquid iron into a fresh hanky.

    The mailman tripped on the cracked sidewalk.

    The injured section of sidewalk took out its boiling frustration on a careless mailman, stealing his balance from him, as gravity came up from behind and brutally pushed him to the ground.



    The airplane crashed

    The dirty aircraft needed a bath and decided the best way was to dive into the cold ocean really fast.

    The forest was silent.

    Wanting to catch the travelers by surprise, the forest decided to be really, really quiet.


    Jimmy was displeased when he found out the milk he just bought was sour.

    Jimmy was clinically depressed to find the lactose medium had acquired a multitude of organisms.


    Betty ran but missed her bus.

    Betty's legs shuffled backwards and forwards, moving, but she still dived past the moving asteroid.

    The water ran from the tap, sending water around the floor.

    The faucet became a geyser, water shooting up to the ceiling and dropping everywhere in tiny crystal drops that shimmered with light.


    Patricia bought a new red car that goes very fast.
