No 7, for example:
"Farts - He has no qualms letting them rip around me just like our kids do. I guess I should be thankful he is so at ease in our relationship, but I am not. Sometimes he blames the dog, or a kid, but I know damn well it was him."

"I mean you can cherish your chair - love it with all your heart - but if you leave it unattended it has the potential of being noticed by those that are standing. "
"My husband is like a shell of man, full of good intentions and able and willing to be invisible and pliable. My husband seems to be unable and unwilling to accept in his reality that he has to develop himself and mature, despite many available therapies, books, and workbooks. I expect practically nothing from him any more because he simply cannot and will not grow as a man "
"My husband is like the meat of a lean weak camel which is kept on the top of a mountain which is neither easy to climb, nor is the meat fat, so that one might put up with the trouble of fetching it."
"Allow me to share a word picture that illustrates this point. A husband is like the captain of a sailing ship. He directs his resources and uses skill to raise and lower his sails, he sets a course for distant ports, and he determines what cargo he will carry or trade."
"I'm sorry Dustin. I wish my husband (currently getting a divorce ) was so supportive and dedicated to his marriage. I've done alot and I MEAN ALOT for my husband, but its unfortunate that these types of selfish people take advantage of good people. They are selfish, and truly lack the emotional connection...in understanding what marriage is all about. The internet is the most sneaky way of cheating...facebook, emails, chat rooms, and dating sites. My husband is like those typical stupid criminals...don't know how to cover their tracks. I was able to find his profile in yahoo, but the idiot forgot to place restrictions on it so the public couldn't view it. Later he deleted it, but I saved a print screen shot."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
