"Lyndsay says her menstruation is like the "horse head scene" in 'The Godfather'. Alan replies and says it could be worse, like the 'prom scene' in the movie."
"Menstruation is like replacing the bedsheet (I just thought about this today ha so just bear with me a little). A woman's body starts to make a bed of blood inside her womb. Then, about a week later (after the old bedsheet has been removed/menstruation), a veil of cervical mucus is sent out (4-5 fertile days) so that the groom (sperm) will be protected from the harsh acidic environment. "
"Menstruation is essentially like organizing a party without inviting any guests, and then angrily throwing out all the decoration when no one shows up."
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.
