Since some of the other word games have recently been closed, I propose a new one I've been thing about creating. This game will be a running string of metaphors. For example imagine this one from Charles M. Schulz being posted last: "Life is like a ten-speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use." If you want to play. You would need to start your analogy with part of the last part of the one above yours. E.G. The gears grated like...Or... The sound from the ungreased gears screamed like... I only used Schulz's as an example, the one you would be playing from would be from another member. I'll throw out an original from me: The moon was reflected in her eyes like a ping pong ball floating in a calm lake. Just to be clear;the next metaphor would need to start with either ping pong balls or lakes.
