2: Her room was a pigsty! | Her hair was a rat's nest.

3: Jack was no child, he was a monster. She was a bull when they made her mad. The girls were two peas in a pod. The girl was a puzzle.

5: He was a pig when it came to sweets. | The girl's head was a time bomb about to go off.

7: His eyes were bigger than his stomach. Mrs. Driskill grew horns because of her anger.

8: The girl screamed so loud she started an avalanche on Mount Everest. | That math test had a million questions!

9: I was buried by a mountain of homework. Kim was so hot the sun got jealous! She was so old she had a dinosaur for a pet!

10: The bright light blinded me! | He was so hungry he could eat a cow.

11: My clothes exploded out of my dresser as I was getting ready for the party.

12: The rainbow lit the sky with brilliant colors. The basketball goal encouraged me to shoot. The baseball sprinted towards me.

14: Even the trees seemed to enjoy her performance. | The birds sang in the midst of winter.

16: Gina the glamorous genie gazed gingerly at the gigantic giraffe gleefully growing a goatee. Silly Sam stupidly sat on slippery slimey spam!

24: The hairbrush was like a porcupine in my hair.

25: Green tastes like the ripe apple fresh off the tree. Green feels like the grass growing in the meadown. Green looks like the color of my friend's pencil. Green sounds like the chirping of the crickets. | Orange feels like autumn leaves falling on me. Orange sounds like parrots in the rain forest. Orange smeills like a fresh pumpkin patch. Orange tastes like Thanksgiving dinner.

26: Navy feels as strong as a ship at sea. Navy tastes like a midnight snack. Navy sounds like the quiet of dusk. Navy smells like the dust in an attic. | Red feels like a fire on a cold winter's day. Red smells like a bowl of spaghetti ready to be eaten. Red looks like a heart -shaped valentine.

27: Yellow feels like the summer sun on my cheeks. Yellow looks like a lightning bug at night. Yellow tastes like sweet honey at breakfast. Yellos smells like a ripe banana. | Yellow smeills like sunflowers. Yellow feels like the sun radiating on my skin. Yellow tastes as sweet as sugar. Yellow sounds like honeybees in the spring.
