Some of us amateur dance reviewers could probably pick up a thing or two from this:

Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
Unknown

The thunder was ominous-sounding, much like the sound of a thin sheet of metal being shaken backstage during the storm scene in a play.

"John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met."
