For the sheer joy of descriptive writing, may I share this sentence with you all?:
" … Barbara was standing beside the car on the other side of the road, teaching the street lamps to shine tenderly."
[Amy Witting, The visit]

teaching the street lamps
Wow. I've always found street lamps to be a little hardheaded. After reflecting on it a few moments, I'd argue that though there is a light on upstairs, it doesn't mean anybody is home. Illuminating metaphor, is it not? Or perhaps I am not convincing. Maybe I should switch my approach.

tsk, tsk Brand. That wasn't too bright. Let Paulb have his moment in the spotlight. It'll give him a chance to shine.
