Other things I think about...

In addition to math problems, I often try to think of the counterpart for idioms which are specific to one sensory input. For example, "site unseen," becomes "sound unheard", "flavor untasted," "texture unfelt," or "odor unsmelt."

"I love the sound of my own voice," can become, "I love the meter of my own prose." Although I believe there may be a better counterpart for that one.

"You could have heard pin drop," can become, "You could have seen a dust mote", though what that may mean is debatable.

You could say "You could have seen a dust mote" in a place that's usually foggy to describe how clear it became at some point.
