    Re: i have a question about hiperbole

    Hyperbole [note spelling] is an exaggerated metaphor.

    "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse."
    "I'm so tired I could fall asleep standing up."
    "Those people are so poor that their rainbows are black and white."
    "His breath is so bad that it could start the windmill on a can of Dutch Cleanser."

    Think of a similar exaggeration about your homework. You can exaggerate the size of the piles on your desk, or the amount of time it will take you to do it. I don't want to do the work for you. Be creative, think of a few, and have fun.
