Find new, different, wacky and original ways to say the same old things. Don't go for the first descriptions that come to your mind like big, tall, skinny, happy or sad.
Instead of saying his breath stunk, say it smelled as if he gargled with toilet water. From a gas station bathroom.
Instead of saying she was having a bad hair day, say her hair looked like a squirrel, a pack rat and a capybara became roomates. And decided to build a three story condo nest in her hair.
Instead of saying he was a large man, say his belly looked like it could double as the bass drum in the 4th of July parade.
Push yourself! Try harder! Go crazy!
