This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of METAPHOR. Our challenge is all about the use of metaphor in our writing. You will need to use the metaphor provided in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our metaphor this week is:
– This is the icing on the cake.
Depending on what is going on would determine what kind of icing is on what cake.
Hubby and I prepare for things and anything extra is gravy, but the principle is the same.
On the bad front, say it’s tipping down with rain on a journey, then the proverbial icing on the cake would be a flat tyre.
I remember saving up for my first stereo record player, and by the time I had enough money, it was reduced in the sale! So that was the icing on that cake, but the extra frosting came with the number of albums I could buy with the money I then had left over!
