As we pulled out Neyha and her friends piled candy on me, since I was “too old” to trick-or-treat. I was definitely thankful, but I felt like I’d stolen their loot, so as they left together in their car I waved enthusiastically, even going so far as to make a heart as we passed them. The result was so instantaneous and crazy that I couldn’t help but laugh a bit. They all started freaking out and bounced up and down, poking each other and waving back until they turned down the road and into the night. I settled back into my seat with a grin, watching as the local people’s mouths dropped open like fish upon seeing my face, causing me to smirk.
“With that he trained a stabbing arrow on Antinous … just lifting a gorgeous golden loving-cup in his hands, just tilting the two-handled goblet back to his lips, about to drain the wine—and slaughter the last thing on the suitor’s mind” (Homer 22.8). Not to mention the fact that murder is a terrible thing for any character to do, but Homer exaggerates the brutality of the murder. In doing so, Homer opens the reader’s eyes to a whole new perspective of Odysseus and his character. In summary, Homer greatly focuses on the many qualities of Odysseus, allowing the reader to form an honest
In “Amazing Grace”, Cliffie, while eating a chocolate chip cookie, shows Kozol a waste incinerator “burning ‘red bag’ products, such as amputated limbs...bedding bandages.” (l. 74-76) Cliffe calls these products ‘burning bodies,’ relating to how bad the air is around them thanks to the products being burned and how people get sick and can die from not breathing enough good air. If the cities found a new, cleaner way of disposing of trash, like recycling, then we would have cleaner air for everyone. Second, we can brighten the world by sharing extra goods with people around us that don’t have what we have.
For Bennett, traveling to a destination was not a problem for him, but coming home he experienced horrible migraines and a lack of water. “‘What’s with the water and the coffee?’ ‘Traveling makes me dehydrated, and caffeine helps with the migraines’” (111). With this in mind, because Anna was not the person actually doing the traveling, she only experienced stomach pains, which were cured with saltine crackers. “He walks over to his desk and returns with a little sandwich bag of saltines […] ‘Those are for you, in case you need them when we get back’” (229).
It couldn’t come from him, could it? He quickly glanced at his nacho’s. Maybe he ate to much from them or they are expired. Or he just felt so lonely without Star that he’s hearing things. Well, whatever it might be, he will just shrug it off and continue with chewing his nacho’s.
For instance, even though the passage is written from Florentino’s perspective, the reader is able to relate to Fermina as well as to Florentino. The moment in which Fermina “crushed leaves of sage and oregano in the palms of her hands for the pure pleasure of smelling them [...] and [...] walked away with tears of laughter in her eyes because the smell of the cayenne pepper made her sneeze so much” gives the reader several moments he or she can relate to (Márquez 99). The vivid imagery also allows the reader to remember the smells or appearance of the objects described, and through this way, the reader can become a part of the story as well. Likewise, metaphors such as “he pursued her breathlessly” invokes feelings, like sympathy, towards the character of Florentino (Márquez 100). It is a prime example of how besotted Florentino is with Fermina, and the reader can relate to his despair.
and we all immediately start dying laughing because my face in the picture looked so scared. Mom, Mrs. Sarah, and Sammie´s pictures looked like they were having a blast. We leave the building of the roller coaster and we go look at the time for Tower of Terror but that wait was too long. The line for Tower of Terror would take too long, so we negotiated that we should just go to Fantasmic so we can get good seats.

Wafting through the light breeze was the sweet aroma of funnel cakes, cotton candy, and hot dogs. Glancing around, I knew one thing, I was determined to go on the three most daunting rides, the Giant Dipper, a hair-raising roller coaster, the Beach Blaster, sickening my stomach at the thought of it, and lastly the dark, looming room of extreme laser tag. While laser tag at the time didn’t seem to be a very
A different language is spoken behind the curtain. The show continues for the rats and loose change. Tired eyes stare into an assaulting vortex of stripes, their patterns dazed and foreign even when bound by the most cherished acquaintance. On the other side of the mirror, though only rumored in low tones of uncertainty, candy floss can turn the strongest of stomachs, rotten teeth still bloom within the cracks of vigilance. The performers are but a star against the ever-expanding vastness of celestial residents, them in themselves a reflection of something deeper.
They floated upward and drifted down slowly nudging one another and repeating the process until the wind would soon die down. When the leaves would become steady and the clouds in the skies would seem to stop moving. All I needed to see Ms. Pointy again was
“It only depends if you agree in cooperating with the Cryogenic Apparatus. If you don’t, your family may have - to be a little vague, if you pardon me - an ‘accident’.” His smirk was beginning to get on my nerves as he calmly took a Kleenex from the tissue box on the desk and wiped my saliva off his Vans. “Of course, maybe I’ll 'entertain ' myself with their brains for a little while. According to you, of course, you believe that my science is just entertainment to me, myself and I. Shall I have your permission to do so?”
There’s old Hot Wheels cars, while getting them out, the soft dust accumulates on the tips of your fingers. Anytime something is moved, clacks of wood and metal are heard barreling out of the dresser drawer. In joy to find a Crayola box full of Tootsie Rolls, you choose the sour green apple pop. Only to want more of these delicious Tootsie Rolls. Continuing to rummage through this adventurous
