Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor, 12 September 2020

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.
Thanks Sarah!

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!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
