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.
