  • He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree. - Jack Bross, Chevy Chase
  • The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't. - Russell Beland, Springfield
  • From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie, surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and "Jeopardy" comes on at 7 p.m. instead of 7:30. - Roy Ashley, Washington
  • Her eyes were like two brown circles with big black dots in the center. - Russell Beland, Springfield
  • Her date was pleasant enough, but she knew that if her life was a movie this guy would be buried in the credits as something like "Second Tall Man." - Russell Beland, Springfield

  • They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth. - Paul Kocak, Syracuse, N.Y.
  • The thunder was ominous-sounding, much like the sound of a thin sheet of metal being shaken backstage during the storm scene in a play. - Barbara Fetherolf, Alexandria

  • The red brick wall was the color of a brick-red Crayola crayon. - Unknown
