Use a timer for each segment of this exercise. Now look at your lists. You gathered all this information in only four minutes of focused observation! The object of this exercise is to explore the connotations of words. Words are not interchangeable. For example, if I say I am going to wear a hat to class tomorrow, you may have many different ideas of what will be on my head when I walk through the door. But if I say I am going to wear a cap to class, you have a clearer idea, and you also assume that I am not going to be formally dressed because a cap is an informal piece of headgear. However, if I say I am going to wear a chapeau (French word for hat), you might get the impression I’m going to show up in something with flowers and netting or maybe a broad, sloping brim. You get the idea. The object of this exercise is to play as much as possible with comparisons. I don’t care how far you have to stretch the comparison; as long as there is any kind of connection, it’s great. Just let yourself play. Your job is to fill in the blanks with as many comparisons as you can think of. Give yourself one minute for each sentence. Example: How is a piece of pizza like a piece of chalk? Answers: Both come in boxes with other, similarly shaped pieces. Both come in different colors and shapes. Both can stain your clothes. You can write a message with either of them (although the pizza might be messy—but it can be done!).
