Turn of Phrase #1

Why not post when I come up with a turn of phrase that particularly tickles me during my writing adventures?  Maybe this will turn into a little impromptu series like my ‘snippets’, which are short excerpts from rough drafts.  They have their own category so you can find them all in one place if you want.

I’ll give the turn of phrases their own category, too.

Here’s today’s: “His lower back crackled like cereal when you pour the milk over.”

Silly, yet evocative.  I like it.
