    • Paragraph 1
      • “...there were some forty-four dogs swirling about our wheels, almost hysterical with anger.”
        • Dramatic/ Exaggeration effect
      • “‘Ah!’ she said, smiling sweetly, as though our arrival had been the most normal thing in the world.”
        • Sarcastic in thoughts
    • Paragraph 2
      • “The door of the hotel opened and an ancient bewhiskered porter appeared and stood staring glassily at the turmoil in the street.”
        • Picture memory to capture very detailed and clear images to allow me to visualise that the porter looks like a fool

        • Ironic makes story not too serious or boring
