Kelly: I wanted to buy a painting I saw that was as beautiful as a sunset.
Rick: Why didn't you buy it?
Kelly: It was as expensive as a car!
Rick: Wow! Was the art store as busy as it was five years ago?
Kelly: No, it wasn't as crowded as it was in the past.
Rick: Did somebody else buy the painting?
Kelly: Yes. I was as sad as my friend who was with me. We both wanted that painting.
Rick: I'm sorry. I know you'll find another painting as fast as lightning.
