As a former English teacher, it brings me great pride and pleasure to share with you Andrew's first simile:
"It sure is dark outside. It's as dark as a goose."

Pretty good, huh? He obviously has the makings of a poet. I mean, look at the irony and the depth of meaning!

Yeah well, anyway, I couldn't be more proud.


  1. what the heck? he MUST be a genius to think of such a clever, deep and unique simile. But mostly you are smart to even recognize his simile genius don't you think? I don't think I have ever even typed the word simile before and I am quite enjoying it.

  2. All I have to say about that is "LOL".

  3. 'Twas as cold as a well-diggers lunch pale.

  4. I also find geese to be dark, ill-meaning creatures. I think he was playing with a double meaning, there.

  5. I agree with Vicoria. One can never trust a goose, I think they are related to your roosters. Didn't Poe write about a dark goose, or maybe that was some other kind of bird...anyway, I am always so impressed with your little lad!
