    6. Mrs. Wilkes had a face like thunder when she realised that her pen collection had gone missing. • There was a smell like rotting meat; one of the dogs had broken wind. I felt like being sick. • The hurricane was like a ship speeding across the sea. Where did it come from? • I liked the show; I was going to burst with joy. • I wanted to explain why I had forgotten about my homework but my tongue was twisted. • I looked at myself in the mirror; it was like meeting another me! • Jenny looked like a bright orange in her dress. She wondered if her friends would like it; they all wore different clothes. • “You don’t understand me!” Richard’s temper was as tight as an elastic band. “Que hablan idiomas diferentes!” Juan replied.
