This is the first hint of the speaker’s disappointment. When Flick “dribbles an inner tube,” rather than a basketball, it becomes a “gag” which makes the reader feel sorry for him, since he is poking fun at himself (21). Most people are familiar with the defensive tactic of making fun of themselves, before someone else beats them to it. This is Flick’s motive.

When the tone of the novel became gloomy, Steven managed to crack jokes to lift the spirit of the story. Steven uses the method quite often which makes him a likable character. On page 122, when he is having a meeting with his teachers about his slipping grades, he thinks a funny comment about Mr. Watras.

As the story goes on some of the schoolboys start to turn into savages. Most of the boys are saved but some of them didn’t make because of the savageness of the schoolboys. Some of the symbols that I think are the most important are Piggy’s glasses, the conch shell, and the signal fire. The first symbol want to talk about is Piggy’s glasses. In the novel Lord of the Flies, there is a character named Piggy that is a intelligent obese boy.
This makes Frank grow more and more intriguing as the story progresses. Frank is noted in the opening of the story as being humorous when he says “‘If you want to piss and moan all day you might as well go home and bitch at your kids (paragraph: 9).’” He is also shown to be humorous in paragraph Thirty-four when he says “Tub,’ he said, ‘you haven’t seen your own balls in ten years (paragraph 34).’” Frank made a joke when he said the deer could read as they followed the tracks to a fence the had a posted no hunting sign. But along with his jokes, Frank is very laid back and philosophical. In paragraph fifty-one, Frank says, “‘Relax,’ Frank said. ‘You can’t hurry nature.
I was in fourth grade the first time I had was taught that a Muslim was not a something bad. I pointed at my older brother and said “Muslim” and hid under a table. I giggled thinking that I was clever and funny, my nine-year-old self not understanding how hurtful that could be and the ignorance that this displayed.

As I was grilling marshmallows for a conduct board event, a random comment from a student caught me off guard. “Chris, your test review session saved my grade thanks!” That comment felt better than any A on a test. When I first accepted the supplemental position (SI) for Math 111, I knew that it would be a good resume boost. My attitude was one of selfishness as I only put in the bare minimum work necessary. Due to my selfish attitude I broke the trust of 50+ kids that were relying on me.
But the thing didn’t stop in doing test I also have to do speech, the day I have to do my speech I wanted the earth open up and swallow me first because it had lasted 8minuted talking and second because everyone was watching me and I felt so stupid standing in front of the class talking about something that I even have no idea what I was saying that when I finish only 2 or 3 applauded and I felt ashamed, but I never blamed the other because it’s not their fault that they do not understand what I was saying I think that my classmates made fun of me, but
2) Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pies by Jordan Sonnelblick is a unique, heart melting, and a humorous book. At first I thought this book would be about an average boy and his “struggles”, but the more I read I discovered a heartwarming story with unique characters that’s well written.
