Omnipresent Metaphor

Here's today's quote,

"Adults try as much as possible to avoid metaphor, though they are never wholly successful."

- Joseph Gold. Read For Your Life: Literature as a Life Support System. Fitzhenry and Whiteside: Markham, 1990. pg 160

Here's my thought on it,

"Not me! I love metaphors!"

Further thought, 

I do understand this quote though because often in regular conversation, it seems that my metaphors are not appreciated or fully understood by others. People seem to try to avoid them in conversation as well.
