Grandfather



"I'm huuuuuunungry."

Warm laugh lines crinkled into a smile, "Are you as hungry as an ant?"

"Nooooooo!" said the girl in the way only grandaughters could.

"Are youuuu... Hungry as a hippo!?"

"Yeah!!"

This was written for the Trifextra Challenge for this weekend :) 

For this weekend's challenge we're asking you to include some hyperbolein your piece.  It doesn't have to be the whole piece, but it needs to be in there, and we're looking for 33 words, as usual.
