Like Scrambled Eggs Over Easy

The new Fifty Words Challenge is up -- week two is all about figurative language. It's not one of my strong suits, which is one of the reasons I picked it. I also chose it because it seemed like something anyone could do. You don't have to be a poet to use figurative language. Whether you write about politics or movies or what you ate for breakfast this morning, you can always sneak in a simile or two.

The illustration for this week's Fifty Words prompt came from A Dictionary of Literary, Dramatic, and Cinematic Terms (Sylvan Barnet et al). It's a great book--I would have been lost trying to teach Language Arts without it. But more importantly, how awesome is it that the entry on figurative language starts on page 50?
