On page 33, for example, he and Crash laugh intensely at Penn’s second hand clothes and gloating about their own expensive sneakers. After Penn says that he may have gotten his clothes at second time around, it says, “Mike and I both exploded. We turned away and pretended we were having coughing fits”. In another occasion, as soon as Mike learns about Penn, he insists on bullying him.

While drunk some pirates came and asked him where his home was and were going to take him home (Bulfinch). He lied where his home was and told them Naxos so the pirates would take him there (Bulfinch). The pirates were on there way all but one decided it was a good idea to sell the boy into slavery (Greek Mythological Story of Dionysus and Ariadne). As soon as the pirates turned the ship the winds stopped and the boat filled with grapevines (Greek Mythological Story of Dionysus and Ariadne). The oars turned into snakes and all the grapevines suddenly became Dionysus head (Greek Mythological Story of Dionysus and Ariadne).
If Duvall was still in town, Jake figured the outlaw’s indulgence for gambling, liquor, and women might provide a lead to his location. He’d been to five saloons already, and so far, no one recalled seeing him. Most saloons looked the same, but the broken chairs in the corner and the cracked mirror behind the bar made the River Bender the exception. The air stank of smoke and whiskey, and a vile looking spittoon sat low on the wooden floor.
One example is when Rainsford, a hunter sailing to Brazil, stays out on the boat deck at night to smoke. Hearing gunshots, Rainford balances himself on a boat rail to inspect the situation. In the process of mounting the rail, his pipe hits a rope and falls, sending him after it. “He lunged for it… he had reached too far and had lost his balance… the blood warm waters of the Caribbean sea closed over his head”(9). In this situation, Rainsford struggles with the natural force of gravity causing both him and his pipe to fall into the sea.
“Who or what is this vile creature that’s come to stay with us?” she asked the King. Herous replied that he was a friend of Tupacus, and everyone must treat him with great respect.
“When we reached Horsehead Landing, lightning was playing across half the sky and thunder roared out, hiding even the sound of the sea. The sun disappeared and darkness descended, almost like night. Flocks of marsh crows flew by, heading inland to their roosting trees; and two egrets, squawking, arose from the oyster-rock shallows and careened away. Doodle was both tired and frightened, and when he stepped from the skiff he collapsed onto the mud, sending an armada of fiddler crabs rustling off into the marsh grass”(10). James Hurst uses personification, foreshadowing, and diction to express a serious, grim mood.
I feel my heart starting to give out but these men don’t care. I refuse to vote at this point, but that was a colossal mistake. They take me out of the cage and into an alleyway where they began to beat me again until I agreed to finish voting. When done voting they drop me back at Ryan’s Fourth Ward Polls and there I lay feeling as if death was staring me in my

It was a beautiful day for the beautiful game of baseball to be played in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, Chicago: breezy, sunny, but not a scorching hot, sweat-bead kind of day. Merely six miles south of Wrigley Field, we boarded the CTA purple line el train, along with clusters and clusters of Chicago Cubs fans also getting on each and every rail car from who knows where. But, let me tell you, I was in awe; I have never been with so many true fans who knew, not only baseball, but knew the Cubs! “Who’s ready for the Cubs to crush the Astros!”
I am very pleased to say that I am living the good life. I live in a fairly wealthy suburban neighborhood located near Cleveland Ohio. It is a wonderful place called Shaker Heights that was founded by “two entrepreneurial brothers, O. P. and M. J. Van Sweringen” (Sax 2). I enjoy living here much more than when I lived in the city. The overcrowding of people and expansion of industry made me feel like I was being squeezed into a box.
