What I get when I google Hyperbole

This is not my post on Hyperbole.  I swear to beejeejus I don’t know what happened, and if I knew what had happened let the lightning strike twice on me and kill me instantly the second time [an example of a hyperbole].

You’ll find my actual post on Hyperbole   HERE   and while you’re at it *Like* it if you must!

Quintessential Hyperbole

5 Nov

If “Hyperbole” were a human being, it would look like me because I sure as hell have the sounds of it.

When I love something, I LOVE it.

When I hate something, I HATE it.

And I make it known!

People have told me I would make a great salesman because of my hyperbole-ic attributes.  My friends often tell me to “zip it”.  My BFF had once suggested me to give “horror” writing a try, because of how I “describe” otherwise mundane stuff.

As it happens, I speak hyperbole-cally.

As is said, I make a mountain out of a molehill.

As I see it, I speak passionately.

I don’t speak words, I speak feelings.  My book reviews are basically “feelings”.  If I were to speak of apple pies, all you’ll hear is my feelings.  If I were to tell you about some beautiful place, all you’ll hear is my feelings.

Words will be words, and feelings [apparently] Hyperbole.

So forgive me for not being very “objective” and rather “dramatic” when I speak!  So forgive me if my writing becomes completely incomprehensible [for one too many hyperbole] for the rational you!
