Storyboard Text

  • Diction: Simile
  • Hey bucko, do you want some candy? It's like a mix between Skittles and Starbursts. It'll be as fun as that sandbox you're in. 
  • It's just candy. Candy won't hurt you. 
  • Diction: Rhetorical question, Sarcasm Syntax: Anidiplosis
  • My dad told me not to take stuff from strangers. Anyways that candy looks really sketchy like a drug or something. Do you really think I'm gonna take that?
  • Diction: Metaphor, Personification Syntax: Assonance, Polysyndeton
  • Don't worry, once you eat it, you'll love it. You'll eat and eat some more and repeat. 
  • I don't think candy looks like that. That looks like it'll punch me in the face and put me in a world of hurt. 
  • Bill is trying to convince Georgie to take the "candy".
