Some Lighter Fare

Hey Miley,

I was just wondering if you were absent the day in second grade that they taught you what a simile is. A simile is a comparison of two things that uses the words 'like' or 'as.'

For example: "His smile was like a slice of sunshine." In our example, you can assume that this gentleman's smile was bright and cheery like sunshine.

So Miley, can you explain to me what you mean when you tell me that you were "bobbing your head like yeah"? Yeah is an indistinct concept used to convey affirmation. It's not really a thing from which you can draw a comparison.

Perhaps you meant that you were bobbing your head up and down as though you were nodding in affirmation to someone? If so, I kind of understand where you were coming from, but you just don't make your point clearly enough. The grammatical usage is all wrong.

Or perhaps you meant that you were bobbing your head like, YEAH! How awesome am I?! I'm Miley Cyrus and I'm dancing! In which case, no. That doesn't even make a little bit of sense, and your music isn't nearly decent enough to justify such confusing, nonsensical bullshit.

Like I said, I was just wondering.

Concerned about your basic education,
ali d.

Up next week: Your love is like whoa? Really?
