What is the following passage an example of?"'Course I never said a word about what was really botherin' me. When I got to my room that night, I took hold of the calendar from Jamison's General Store and circled the date with my drawing pencil. Though I wasn't about to forget what I'd seen, I thought it was important to make a note of November twelfth somehow." (18)
This statement hints at the fact that the narrator would not forget and that she would remember that date. This is foreshadowing her later actions, when she sends the letter to remind Catlin of that date. There is no irony (the opposite of what is expected doesnt happen), metaphor (nothing is being compared), or hyperbole (nothing is exaggerated).
