In creative writing today we all had a list of starters for similes. For example...

After he cleaned the house it sparkled like...
Her hands were as cold as...
Jacob acted bravely, like...

My favorite...

"Let's break up," he said; and his comment hit her like...

my ending... " hit her like the beam when she missed her foot on a split leap"

Which lead me to the conclusion that being dumped is like crotching the beam. When you realize what is happening an instant before it happens but that instant seems to drag on forever. There's no way to stop it, and the bruises are usually deeper mentally than physically.

That is totally true! While I haven't actually gone through the pain of breaking up with a guy, I know from friends experiences(and my own 2 year crush) just how painful and confusing that kind of stuff can be.:ashamed:
