  2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
  3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
  4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E. coli and he was room-temperature Canadian beef.

  10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty bag filled with vegetable soup.

  12. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.
  13. 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.

  20. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.

    • I do, though I suspect most of these weren’t meant to be part of an actual book. Can’t say that for sure, though. The one about the brother in law, Phil, sounds like something Harry Dresden would say. πŸ˜€ Glad you enjoyed them, Yvette. Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

    • I don’t know for sure, Sue, but I have seen similar things in the past that were taken from high school papers from English classes. And they could be a mixture, too. But whatever, and whoever, they are STILL making me laugh!

      Thanks for stopping by today! πŸ™‚
