I'm still going strong in the NaBloPoMo! Today's prompt "Hyperbole" comes from "The Daily Post" - and guess what? This German immigrant had to google the meaning of the word first. Just in case you don't know what it means either, here you go:
Hyperbole, derived from a Greek word meaning “over-casting” is a figure of speech, which involves an exaggeration of ideas for the sake of emphasis.You are welcome.
After reading this definition I've realized I might not have known the word, but I sure as heck am the
FREAKIN' QUEEN OF HYPERBOLE!
Here are some examples out of my daily life:
- I haven't eaten for ages.
- I'm 100 years older than you.
- I could eat 27893 wraps and chips today.
- It's -2783F outside.
Maybe I should get a "Word-a-Day" app or something. There sure are trazillions of english words I don't know yet.
Yep, you just got "hyperboled" and I am making up words...
