Blogging about this is like...

Be honest, you don't know the difference between a simile and a metaphor either, do you? Well, I rarely keep them straight, but the Internets reminded me that a simile is when the word "like" is involved, and if there's one thing you can count on in this world, it's that the Internets don't lie. And with that, may I present a couple recent funny similes:

Briefing every case in law school is like mowing your lawn by grabbing fistfuls of grass.
Going out with a friend's old boyfriend is like wearing your sister's hand-me-down underwear...you just don't do that.
Seeing a Sig at the Gateway is like seeing a teenager at a high school.
Lisa Simpson, about Nelson: "He's like a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a vest."
and my personal favorite...
Mom blogs are like family Christmas newsletters on crack.

Yes, I have Fiona's number, but I really do believe she's a witch. I've been having sleepless nights wondering if she's already put a curse on me.

Reading your blog is like being seriously so blessed.

I do know the difference, but that's because I'm brilliant (or, I am holding onto memories that I should really clear out to make extra space.)

You are dangerously close to getting kicked off our Christmas Card list :).

Clearly you didn't have sisters, Gurrbonzo.

sister hand-me-downs are awesome.

What's wrong with wearing your sister's underwear? Sheees, it's part of the traveling pants thing.
