Bono metaphors coming to life...
« on: June 21, 2017, 05:28:01 AM »
We're having a heatwave right now in France. I was going back from work on my bike when it occured to me... "Hot as a hairdryer in your face". That felt exactly like it. I had to take a sip of water at every traffic light so that my throat wouldn't entirely dry.

Has it occured to you too ? (pun not intended)

That has to be the weirdest Bono lyric ever. Is that a b-side ? I'm not familiar with it ;-)

Only kidding. I emphasize !

It IS hot as hell...I walked down to our mailbox yesterday, dangling the mailbox key from my fingers...by the time I got back to the house, the keys were almost too hot to hold! I once had a dangling earring burn my neck from our summer sun. It is INTENSE!

We had about 85 or 90, i am not sure. For Holland that's hot. But wow when your keys and earrings get hot like that it's time to move into the fridge and take a nap

If you listen closely to this tour version of SBS he says:

Fact is Fiction, Reality TV.

Yeah, this one has been on my mind lately for its urgency.

That wordplay encompasses two themes in our times. All in 5 words.
