When the witness smiled, her gold tooth beamed like... a hundred-watt light bulb.
After she strolled by, her perfume lingered on the air like... a plume of exhaust from a passing car. (Irony)

I opened my eyes to the sound of thunder. I was soaking wet and when I looked up, rain pelted me in the face like... a fistful of bullets.
