Most people hate Mondays. I hate Tuesdays. They’re the longest day at work for me and also the day I have the most meetings. Teachers are busy people; we don’t have time for meetings! Add to the mix a sore throat and my husband cutting his knuckle off (don’t ask) and you’ve got a recipe for an exhausting day.
So I’m going to be lazy and post a few more Student Analogies and Metaphors because I could use the giggle and I’m hoping you can too.
1. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
2. He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree.
3. The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wife’s infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge-free ATM.
4. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan might just work.
5. The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.
Doesn’t everyone have experience frying maggots in hot grease? I know you were just waiting to find out where today’s post title came from.
I’m particularly fond of #3. Which one made you laugh the most?
