What Metaphors Do You Use in Your Playing?

We had a term called "boom cha" to denote the old 2/4 feel that was expected when playing polkas and other ethnic music.

Kind of a derogatory thing too in that it was used to describe drummers with no feel other than 2/4.

I like the idea of the band flowing around the pulse and riding the time as surfing a wave.
