Hyperbole is the WORST thing EVER!

Today we discussed hyperbole in my sixth grade class. I give them examples: "My mom's going to kill me for being late again!"
Debbie speaks up. "How about, 'I'm going to die of boredom.'"
"Yes," I say, "very good. Has anyone anywhere on planet Earth ever died of boredom? No."
"That's not true, " David Han, a small, bespectacled man of surprising interests, protests, forgetting to raise his hand. "Legolas Greenleaf's son did."

Somedays I don't even know.
