1. Which of the following sentences from the text contains an example of a metaphor?

A. He looked like one of those ballerinas that dance just on the tips of their toes.

B. Momma’s horrible snake-woman voice came out again and said “If you ever, ever...”

C. Byron’s hand was shaking and he was crying like a big baby but his finger still stayed out.

D. Right when the fire was going to give him a good roasting Joetta ran across the room and, sounding like that Little Engine That Thought It Could, she blew the match out before it got him!

I think its A? Maybe D?

    That's two wrong guesses Linda/Claudia/lana. Now you're on your own.

  47. Christmas is just another Pagan holiday, its not for Jesus's birthday, it was made for a day to worship the sun, which is why the star is put on top. If you want to celebrate it, that's fine, just don't bring tons of people into it.
    ( I swear, people that dislike this are just annoyed because I spoke about my own opinion. "And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them." - Luke 6:31)
