#sol19 March 2

I have been sick for the past two weeks with a cold / slight flu that I can’t seem to shake off. For today’s slice I wrote some similes to try to capture how annoying this cold has been.

This cold is like a teenage crush; it consumes my every thought, leaving me aching.

My sense of taste blinks in and out like a lightbulb on its last legs.

The end of my nose is as red as a devil. (Credit my 7 year old for this one)

Like a river smoothing stones over the centuries, my nose constantly drips eroding both the skin and my well being.

I want to tap my sinuses like a maple tree to let the syrup run free.

  1. Very clever! I like your similes! I never thought of trying to write so many similes about one subject before…nicely done. 🙂 ~JudyK
