Last night me and a friend were talking he said he had a nose bleed and would be back soon. When he returned I asked if the nose bleed was over he said "I shot it in the face with a 9mm, metaphorically speaking"
I pointed out to him that I did not believe this was a metaphor as it had no context or logical conclusion, e.g. his hart was stone makes sense because he could be cold and unyielding, where as a nose bleed dose not have a face and shooting it would probably increase blood flow rather then stop it.
Any way this debate went on for a very tedious hour, I am hoping that some one maybe able to confirm if it is or isn't a metaphor and preferably explain why?
Thank you very much for your time and sorry for posting something so pointless
Not, however, a particularly good metaphor. )
