What are some similes, metaphors, or hyperboles for the word "bored"?
A simile is comparing two things using 'like' or 'as'; therefore an example could be:
'I am so bored, it is like I am watching paint dry'
A metaphor is stating that something IS something else, but this is not actually true most often. An example could be:
'Paint drying is the essence of boredom'
Hyperbole is the extreme exaggeration of something. For example:
'I was too bored to write a response'
