And mean guys.” (Salinger 90). When Holden left Pencey Prep, shouting “Sleep tight, ya morons” (Salinger 29), he starts to cry which suggests that he is disappointed in himself because he also became a phony. His phoniness surfaces when he constantly lies “even during the most ordinary conversations the boy has, he lies about either his age, or something about his family or even when he is trying to please people around him” (Pinto 12) which is another example of a reckless behavior Holden demonstrates. Holden lies to Ernest Morrow’s mother by stating that he sick: “It isn't very serious. I have this tiny little tumor on the brain” (Salinger 32).
Sometimes people have to make a hard decision or choice in life when deep down they have to end up letting go of one of the options. In the story, “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” that was brought to life by W.D Wetherell, when the narrator had to make a hard choice of either letting Sheila go or the bass.There are many reasons the narrator had one of the hardest choices, including his immaturity as a teenage boy. The other main reason that it was a hard choice was that he wanted to impress Sheila, and since she didn’t like fishing he had to pretend to be someone he was not. Firstly, in the beginning of the story the narrator had an obsession with Sheila. He had fallen into a trap of her beauty, intelligence, and just her whole perspective

After reading this week’s readings I have found that the fact that Mary Wilkins Freeman was best known for her ghost stories is really interesting. I am interested in the horror genre as far as movies and books go. When I was reading the lesson and found out that she was known for these types of stories I was excited and looked forward to reading the story. However, when I was reading “The Revolt of “Mother””. I did not see any similarities that would make me think that she was known for her ghost stories.
Even though Rose is a great wife to Troy, he still is so discontent with his life that he cheats on her. Troy tells Rose on page 69, "It ain't about nobody being a better woman or nothing. Rose, you ain't the blame. A man couldn't ask for no woman to be a better wife than you've been" (Wilson, 1986). This shows that Troy was fortunate enough to have Rose as his wife, but he was so unhappy with his life he found someone else to be with and love.

BOOK IX.V5: Odysseus Meets Carbouranium and Gets Enchanted “The vexing encounters we had with the Lotus Eaters and Polyphemus caused many of my men to grieve deeply for our dear comrades which we have lost. Though it made my men glad to have escaped death and live to tell of the tale one day. “We carried on throughout the sea, many of the men 's spirit were absent from all the rowing since there was no wind to aid us. Nine whole days we had tackled such madness from Poseidon Earthshaker sea, yet now we see that our trauma had payed off. “The temperature of the air dropped steadily surrounding the lower part of the ship.
I also believe that George did the wrong thing because Lennie is his family, and has been with him through it all. George could have told him to go to the caves. The ending in my opinion was sad, for the reason that Lennie never expected George to do something so harsh like that. But I guess George just gave up on Lennie because he was just too tired to always cover up for his wrong doings. I believe that George made the worse of the two decisions.
He found some of his countrymen and asked what was going on and they told him they are being carried to the white people’s country to work for them.

The inaction and sloppiness of the US government and its military at the time is what caused the USS Indianapolis to fail and for the nearly 900 men to die at sea. If the ship would have been properly repaired and stocked, along with the men on the ship being properly trained for sea life, all those innocent, brave lives would not have died. The ship sank and failed due to the military 's haste upon needing new recruits and the how utterly unprepared the ship was
The one I think that is changed the most at the end would be Cash, he is not only physically hurt but he is also also mentally changed. I think Cash is mentally changed due to the fact that the coffin he worked so hard on for his mom was almost lost in the water along with his mom. Also, all of his tools were dumped in the water and he almost lost of those too. If he would have lost all of that then he probably would have lost most of the stuff he’d been working his whole life on getting. In the end, I think they are all mentally affected by the panic of the whole situation and the terrifying thought of losing their mother before they were ready to say goodbye for good.
