Ordinary language is all right.
One could divide humanity into two classes:
those who master a metaphor, and those who hold by a formula.
Those with a bent for both are too few, they do not comprise a class.
'… truly person to person, even if others are standing nearby.'
'I don't care about your case. I care about you.'
Forecast lookin like a math class.
Negative highs, declining prospects.
'Each of us is a big enough audience for the other.'
