Of literary devices, and the little things...

Sara is learning metaphors in class and I got to thinking of my current favorite song lyrics. It's one of those where the first time I heard it, I didn't get it. That's the beauty of it. It's subtle. I like my humor subtle. It's the little things, right? Like a wink to the audience, not feeling the need to beat it over their heads. You either get it or you don't.

Like the Dead Sea
You told me I was like the Dead Sea.
You'll never sink when you are with me
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea

So of course, you have to know that at the Dead Sea, the salt density.... you know what, it's not as good when you have to explain it. Basic rule of wit (and I take those things very seriously - ironic, I know). Anyway, the song is pretty too.

Just perfect.
