My apologies to Forrest Gump and his mama, but I think life may be like more than just a box of chocolates. Which, of course, is still quite a lovely simile about life and the great unexpected moments of it. However, I think that life is more like a fish tank. Now, granted, this simile came to me while I was cleaning my fish tank, but even a few days later I still think it is apropos. You see, life is a vessel which comes in various sizes and seems transparent but can be so much more. Just like a fish tank. So, drum up the voice of Tom Hanks, ala Forrest Gump, and repeat after me. ”Life is like a…fish tank.” Which is short two syllables, but whatever.
