It has been raining a lot here the past two days (thanks, again, Fay), which is great because we really need it. But, everybody always has to comment on the rain.
“Wow, it’s really wet out there.”
“It sure it coming down outside.”
And my favorite…
“It’s raining cats and dogs.”
Why? What does this really mean? How can cats and dogs relate to rain?
So, I’m putting this on you, offer me your best explanation for this literary device. And, I’m not even sure what it is. Simile (no, it doesn’t use like or as), metaphor, alliteration? What?
Don’t cheat, either. There are some silly explanations already out there, but I want yours! There *might* be a small prize for the best answer, too.
