So I’m the worst speller ever, and often doubt myself on the spelling of simple words. Like today, I wanted to spell Witty and wondered it it had a H. So I went to my trusty friend, Google…and It doesn’t. But upon my search I stumbled on a Wiki How titled ” How to have a Witty Conversation.”
This is my favorite part:
4. Use metaphors
. Let’s say someone says, out of the blue, “It’s 6 o’clock!” You can say “Thank you, Big Ben!” (“Big Ben” is a nickname for a giant bell in a clock in London.) This is a particularly sarcastic
example, because you’re also implying (by saying “thank you”) that you didn’t care to know what time it was (because you’re obviously not thankful!) but not all metaphors have to be sarcastic. Describing a messy desk, for instance, as the “North Pacific Gyre”
is a witty and creative way to say it’s quite messy. You can also use witty metaphors to compliment or admire someone.
