“Dad jerked the steering wheel to one side and drove off the road into the desert after her. Lori, Brian, and I braced one another with our arms, like we always did when Dad went on some wild chase that we knew would get bumpy… We shot forward toward Mom, who screamed and jumped out of the way. Dad turned around and went for her again” (Walls 43). This is when Rex is chasing Rose Mary, who is on foot, in a car. She is pregnant with her fifth child, and was mad at Rex when he disagreed with her about how long she carried Lori for.
Well last year, we decided to go to the same neighborhood and egg houses again. Little did we know that, the people that stayed on the corner of that neighborhood was patiently waiting on us. Soon as we egged their house, they let their pit-bull out on us. He chased us, and I’m jumping on everybody cars and trash cans outside. When we left the neighborhood, the man and his sons came down the road shooting up in the air.
I told my mom, “ I’m horrible at this game, I get so close everytime and I just can’t hit a ball over the fence.” She replied with the, Field of Dreams, quote “Build it and they will come.” What she was meaning by that was keep working and doing what I’m doing right now
After I had arrived, they invited me to snort a line. I took a big whiff, it burned my nose; they all started laughing their asses off and told me that it was acid and that they had already ingested some and were getting off. They said it is the weekend what else would you be doing?
Batman must have decided his ladies were missing him, and took off running for the gate, I 've had opened for 45 minutes now. Once he entered the pasture he went crazy, which is normally a good sign. After I shut the gate and got everything back to the way it was; I called my father, and he laughed and laughed at me. I will never forget this, nor will I ever try and put any bull back in on my two feet. This has taught me to never give up on doing something you said you 'd do, and to just keep going, everything will work
Another time I walked down our stairs, and it slipped. Six months after the first time falling, I needed surgery. Normally on a Friday morning, I would have ridden the bus to school and hung around until class started. Instead, I hopped into my mom’s suburban, and we rode to St. Gabriel’s Hospital in Little Falls.
The first time I went to Mackinac Island was a truly unforgettable experience. Lots of people have always told me “We can’t go, we can’t fit the wheelchair on the boat.” But during last summer in August we decided to go Mackinaw City instead. I was super excited for it, I don’t why I had been to the city parts a thousand times over. That and I was sick as a dog with an unexplainable cold but that didn’t stop mom from saying “okay we’re going.”
“I rose above him as he tried to dunk it. I TOOK THE BALL RIGHT OUT OF HIS HANDS! Yep, we were, like, ten feet off the ground, but I was still able to reach out and steal the ball from Rowdy. Even in mid air, I could see the absolute shock on Rowdy’s face. He couldn’t believe I was flying with him.
As soon as I walked out of the kitchen I see Wes punching his sister in the face. I was so filled with rage that my eyeballs popped out of my socket. That’s when I started to yell “get up to your damn room” “I told you, don’t you ever put your hands on a woman!” (pg 7). Just seeing Wes punch his sister sent me back to that moment when Bill had beat me.
Brenna Peterson Ms. Drosdick English 9 01/11/2017 Narrative 2 Walkin’ into to school each day is something I hate dearly. The meek whispers of “He’s a Cunningham,” “He ain’t even got shoes,” “Did y’all see what Walter Cunningham was wearin’” ought to be the same questions I hear every day scattered across the schoolyard. I reckon that if my family was just as prosperous as the regular old folks in this town, we would be treated differently.
