Where is that waiter? If I don't get that sandwich soon, I will go into advanced starvation and begin to hallucinate.

    Just rephrase it a little: We are like flies to cruel little boys; they kill us just for fun.

    I agree. I think it's hyperbole.

    hmm the first one now i am stuck with simile, metaphor and personification?

    And as for the second one i don't understand why it would be a hyperbole

    The first one can only be simile.

    The second one -- "a million dollars" -- don't you think if someone gave him $1,000, he'd be just as happy??
