I mentioned last month that Dan is fluent in Sports Analogies.
Dan has illustrations for his illustrations. English is his second language; his heart language is analogies. As Exhibit A, I give you the following conversation we had on the way to the beach last week.
Me: You know you're getting old when you think Delilah plays good music. I hate Delilah.
Dan: Does anyone like Delilah?
Dan: Where is her presence? Do mommy bloggers talk about her?
Me: No, nobody talks about her. Nobody likes Delilah.
Dan: Delilah is like the Dairy Queen of radio show hosts.
Dan: Delilah is the Dairy Queen of radio show hosts. She doesn't move the meter. She's just there. Everybody knows her, but nobody talks about listening to her. She is ever-present and irrelevant. Like Dairy Queen. When someone brings it up, you have an opinion, but otherwise you never think about it.
Me: HOW DOES YOUR BRAIN WORK?
Dairy Queen, I am so sorry to inform you that you are the Delilah of the fast food world. Feel free to forward this to your PR people right before you fire them.
