Victory Is Mine

E.: MMMAAARRRCCCC! Those musicians don't know what methaphor is!
M.: What?
E.: Methaphor!
M.: You mean m-e-t-a-p-h-o-r.
E.: They don't know what it means! For example "don't it make my brown eyes blue" doesn't mean her eyes turn blue. Blue in this context means sadness. The dictionary says a metaphor is "a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance". The musicians don't understand it!
M.: But musicians use metaphor all the time.
E.: Yes, but they are ignorant. One of them even said I had it backwards. There is no question I defeated them grammatically!
