Also, food isn’t always to blame for vomiting and diarrhea. Even if you’ve picked up one of the stomach bugs mentioned above, there’s no way to know where it actually came from. Maybe you forgot to wash your hands after touching something covered in germs, like your phone or a railing, then ate some finger food. Or perhaps your late-night heaving isn’t caused by anything you ingested at all. Stress, anxiety, anger, sadness, and other taxing things that weigh on your mind could be what’s causing the problem. So, before you get angry and blame that ethnic restaurant, think about your food poisoning timeline.
Not for headlines, but within copy, it is important for me to use the word LIKE somewhere in there for two reasons. The first is such usage almost always is in an analogy, and anologies work well in persuasive writing. Analogies are like pictures, they convey more than the words they are comprised of. The second is that within the analogy, I always try and put the word like in front of what I am persuading about. For example, if the new “what-a-car-mobile” is something I am trying to pursuade some to take interest in, I could say “Seeing a double rainbow is for visual pleasure much like the what-a-car-mobile is for driving pleasure. The embedded secondary statement that speaks to the subconscious is ‘like the what-a-car-mobile”.
